Mega talented illustrator Clare Elsom is also a sickeningly talented author! Her new series Horace and Harriet tell the adventures of a little girl and her best friend, a local statue.
“Lord Commander Horatio Frederick Wallington Nincompoop Maximus Pimpleberry the Third (or Horace, for short) has been a statue in Princes Park for hundreds of years. But after suffering endless pranks, graffiti and mountains of pigeon poo, Horace has had JUST ABOUT ENOUGH.
He decides it’s time to get off his pedestal. Surely he can find a better home? One suitable for such a fine commander? Assisted by his new friend Harriet (she’s seven and a quarter years old and definitely NOT a statue) Horace tackles modern life in his quest to find the perfect place to live.”
