Synopsis

Scotland A Very Peculiar History by Fiona MacDonald

The Cherished Library is a new series, designed to look and feel like fine editions from a cemetery of forgotten books. The ornate key to this labrynthine lair of lost literature has been handed down from generation to generation of the Cherish family. Just before his death in 2008, the late Professor Cherish ordered that these books be made available to the public. Scotland: A Very Peculiar History, Volume 1 is a lively and informative account of the vibrant history of Scotland, from its earliest inhabitants up to the beginnings of Stewart rule. It celebrates the cultural achievements of the Scottish, giving an up-to-date and objective account of the nation's origins and history, with 'No added Haggis!' Fun and informative inserts and illustrations accompany the main text. It includes fact boxes and index.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
