Synopsis

A Hantle O Verse Poems in Scots for Children by Bette Boyd

With its rich mixture of Blethers, Bairns, Bogles, Beasties, Ballads, Battles and Bourachs, this poetry collection draws upon a range of languages and dialects of Scotland, from the Lallans of the south and the Doric of the north-east, to the distinctive speech rhythms of Caithness and the northern isles. Experience the sounds and cadences of the Scots language by reading aloud the poems contained within this anthology. This is a book to be enjoyed not just by children, but by all.
