Hester and Lester
When big sister Hester finds her little brother Lester sitting sadly in the forest, she’s keen to put things right. But making a little brother happy isn’t always easy … even with a very active imagination! It’s a story about the special bond between a sister and brother, and the power of imagination.
In my family, there are three boys, Cameron is the oldest, the there’s David then me. And I’ve got a younger sister called Raene. Raene and I used to play together all the time when we were young. But I sometimes wonder what it would have been like if Raene was my older sister, instead of being younger. That’s why I dedicated this book to her!
