Tell us aboot yersel or yer ootfit.
The first significant collection of original Scots poems for children and young people in several years, A Squatter o Bairnrhymes has been critically acclaimed as a modern-day successor to William Soutar’s ground-breaking collection of 1933, Seeds in the Wind. A funny, wonderful, and thought-provoking volume of 100 pages of poetry that’s already being enjoyed by children from 5-95 in Scotland and beyond, each Bairnrhyme is beautifully illustrated by young Perthshire artist Zack Fummey. An important new addition to Scots literary tradition!
