Slithering stoorworms, mischievious brownies, fierce kelpies and magical selkies, these are the creatures of Scottish folklore. Award-winning children's author Theresa Breslin has collected the best-loved tales from all over Scotland and complemented them with Kate Leiper's illustrations.
'A delightful and varied collection of stories from all over Scotland. Theresa Breslin's style is so compelling and chatty that you feel she is sitting in the room with you, telling you her favourite tales of kelpies and brownies, talking birds, sheepdogs and selkies. And Kate Leiper's illustrations are stunning. This is a beautiful book, which will be treasured by children in Scotland and far afield.'
'This is a lovely book enhanced with the most beautiful illustrations. Folk stories have not lost their appeal in the modern world - it is books like this that will keep them alive" Alexander McCall smith'
