Synopsis

There Was a Wee Lassie Who Swallowed a Midgie by Rebecca Colby

'There was a wee lassie who swallowed a midgie. I don't know why she swallowed the midgie, So teeny and squidgy!' In this hilarious twist on a much-loved rhyme, the wee lassie swallows a succession of Scotland's favourite creatures to catch that peskie midgie -- including a puffin, a Scottie dog, a seal, and even Nessie! After all that, she can't still be hungry. Can she? Kate McLelland's funny, engaging illustrations bring to life this uniquely Scottish version of a classic rhyme.

Reviews

'The repetition and humour are ideal for reading aloud and, combined with Kate McLelland's funny, engaging illustrations, would be very popular with young children.'

's Church Magazine'
