Synopsis

Robert Burns and All That by Alan Burnett

This is a fun and informative look at Scotland's national bard and the times in which he lived. Meet the lassies who stole Burns' heart and the creatures that inspired his poetry. Join his quest to rescue a lost musical treasure - and get chased by ghouls as he explores the dark side of life. On a more serious note, find out why Burns supported the French Revolution, discov-er the origins of Burns Night and learn what's really inside a haggis.

About the Author

Alan Burnett

Allan Burnett writes books for children and adults including the acclaimed And All That series of blood-spattered historical biographies; World War 2: Scottish Tales of Adventure based on Allan's first-hand interviews; and Invented In Scotland. He contributes to a number of newspapers and magazines, having worked as a writer, features commissioning editor and deputy foreign editor at The Herald and Sunday Herald group.

Allan was born and brought up in the Western Isles, and educated at the University of Edinburgh. By night working as a caped ghost-tour guide, by day he earned a distinction for his postgraduate thesis on constitutional history and literature. These days he gets dressed up as a rogue medieval courtier or imprisoned U-Boat officer, among other guises, to tell Scottish history tales and create literacy projects with heritage sites and schools. He lives in Glasgow with his wife and daughter.
