Synopsis

Katie Morag and the Tiresome Ted by Mairi Hedderwick

Welcome to the Island of Struay, home of one of the best-loved characters in children's books and as seen on TV - Katie Morag McColl! Katie Morag is mightily put out when her new baby sister is born and grabs all the limelight. She is so cross that she even kicks her trusty old one-eyed teddy bear into the sea in a fit of rage! But she soon starts to regret what she's done and misses dear old ted dreadfully. What will she do? Surely he is lost for ever...

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.
