Hungry Hettie

Hungry Hettie


Publisher: Floris Books

Share this page:

In a sort of farmyard reworking of Eric Carle’s Very Hungry Caterpillar, Hettie the Highland cow munches her way through a daily succession of increasingly unsuitable treats brought to her by a pair of affectionate but misguided children. Following the inevitable tummy ache on day seven, both Hettie and her junior benefactors realise that actually, plain old grass is by far the est food for a heifer and everyone is happy – including Granny Mcleod, who is particularly relieved that her bloomers are no longer in danger of being pinched from the washing line as a bovine snack. Warm, funny, and as deliciously Scottish as home baked shortbread in a tartan tin, this is a story that will delight young listeners time and time again.
