Cameron the capercaillie is the worst dancer in the Scottish Cairngorms, but maybe with the help of his new friend, Hazel the red squirrel, he'll learn some great moves!

A brilliant story about believing in yourself, full of fun actions, sounds and dancing.


'A wonderful, gentle wee story about learning to believe in yourself, and discovering what you are good at... Katie Pamment's beautiful illustrations are a perfect complement for Emily's word.'
