Cameron is a capercaillie and capercaillies LOVE to dance -- well, all except Cameron! Cameron is the worst dancer in the Scottish Cairngorms -- but his new friend, Hazel the squirrel, thinks she can help... Together they travel through the forest, jumping up and down, ducking under branches and kicking pinecones. Then when the dancing begins, Hazel tells Cameron to JUMP, DUCK and KICK. Maybe he can dance after all! Full of fun sounds and actions, this is a brilliant story about learning to believe in yourself by Emily Dodd, with gentle illustrations of a host of loveable Scottish animals by Katie Pamment.

'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.' -- Dorky Mum 'Lovely to look at -- and just kooky enough to keep readers engaged for the hoary message.' -- Kirkus
