How to Make a Heron Happy
The heron in the local park always looks sad and grumpy, so Hamish decides to cheer it up. He brings food, tidies the herons dirty pond, plants flowers, and has a party. But the heron still looks grumpy. Maybe it isn’t unhappy after all?
A charming story from Edinburgh-based writer and storyteller, Lari Don.
'I'd definitely recommend this, whether as a family read or for a primary classroom.'

'A great story about a park!'
-- Juno Magazine, March 2011
'With only a line or two of text on the page and plenty of repetition, this is ideal for beginning readers. O'Byrne's illustrations have the look of pen-and-ink sketches with watercolor... As read-aloud or read-alone, a nice addition to the caring-for-our environment collection.'
-- Kirkus Reviews
'A feel-good story ... The illustrations are stunning, colourful, informal with a watercolour effect. ...This is also a great book for reading aloud, which would also encourage imagination and discussion.'
