Reviews

'Such a lovely translation of a brilliant adventure rhyme... This is such a brilliant story and jings your kids will love hearing you trip over the Scots words. BookBairn actually enjoys this version more than the original -- I thinks Scots words are a bit more descriptive and onomatopoeic than the original -- and we will definitely be enjoying this one over and over again!' -- BookBairn, book blogger
