LEIGH HOBBS: AUSTRALIA'S CHILDREN'S LAUREATE 2016-17
Horrible Harriet lived at school. She had a nest, high up in the roof. She was very helpful in class, but the other kids thought she was mean and nasty, cruel and wicked!
Harriet is back, with a new friend - Mr Chicken.
The fact that Mr Chicken terrorises the entire school doesn't matter a jot, as Horrible Harriet knows how to handle him and thereby becomes popular at last.For the afternoon, at least.
'The work of an utterly original artist whose boundless generosity is matched by a thumping talent for talking directly to kids.' - Sydney Morning Herald
'There's something universally appealing about all Hobbs' creations . . . remarkable how much emotional range he conveys in a few brush strokes.' - The Age
'Hobbs has a delightfully quirky sense of the ridiculous his vibrant illustrations, full of movement and colour, complement this wacky story wonderfully well.' - Sunday Tasmanian
