Synopsis

Katie Morag and the Dancing Class by Mairi Hedderwick

The Two Grandmothers have decided that Katie Morag is to take ballet classes. Katie Morag is not impressed - she has better things to do on a Saturday morning. But Grannie Island says it will be good for her coordination and Granma Mainland longs to see Katie Morag in a puce pink frou-frou skirt and pink ballet pumps, instead of those dreadful wellies! There's nothing she can do ...or is there? Every Saturday, Katie Morag late for ballet class and one day she's so late that the tap dancing class has already started! Katie Morag would love to tap dance with the Big Boy Cousins - it looks so much more fun than ballet, but she needs special shoes and she can't possibly ask Granma Mainland for another pair. Luckily Grannie Island finds an ingenious way to turn Katie Morag's wellies into tap boots. And when she shines as the star of the show at the Dance Perofrmance even Granma Mainland can't be cross.

About the Author

Mairi Hedderwick
Mairi Hedderwick was born in Gourock, Scotland. At seventeen she took a job as a mother’s help on the Isle of Coll in the Hebrides, beginning a life-long love affair with islands and their small communities. Her children were brought up there and now some of her grandchildren. From being Grannie Island she has now moved on to being Granma Mainland, but her heart is always on the island. Mairi’s island world is delightfully reflected in the imaginary island of Struay where Katie Morag and her family live. As well as creating children’s books Mairi writes and illustrates travel books for adults. She spends a lot of time visiting schools and is always accompanied by Katie Morag’s teddy, which travels with her in a black bag.
