Hettie the Highland cow is very mucky. Calum and Kirsty think it's time for a wash but Hettie isn't keen. Quick -- hide!

But poor Hettie finds she can't hide in the flock of sheep, or behind the prickly gorse bush, or with the deer in the forest -- she's too big!

When she gets tangled up in the washing line, her hide and seek is over. But a bath might not be so bad after all…

In the third story starring the mischievous Highland cow, Hettie's attempts to avoid a bath lead to a hilarious game of hide and seek. This lively and funny story is brought to life by Jo Allan's characterful illustrations.
