Hector and Hummingbird

Publisher: Scholastic/Alison Green Books

Review

Hector and Hummingbird are the best of friends. Mostly.

Everything Hector does, Hummingbird wants to do too - eating custard apples, scratching and sleeping in trees. Sometimes Hector just wants a bit of time on his own.

But when Hector stomps off into the jungle to find a bit of peace and quiet, he finds that he misses Hummingbird, especially in the dark noisy forest at night.

The 1950s style and colouring of this fantastic picture book from debut author/illustrator Nicholas John Frith is very appealing. The story of Hector and Hummingbird is a lovely one for children with - sometimes irritating but always lovable - little brothers and sisters.
