Mairi Hedderwick's Katie Morag is one of those characters that makes you yearn for simpler times, away from the rush and anxieties of everyday life. Katie Morag lives on the Isle of Struay, off mainland Scotland, in a tightknit community made up of family and friends who live and work side by side in relative harmony.
The Big Katie Morag Storybook brings together a collection of stories, rhymes and pictures about Katie Morag's life on the Island, illustrated with whimsical, classic illustrations that add a divine touch of nostalgia to the tales.
Katie Morag will appeal to children who enjoy soft, lyrical storytelling set in a time and place that, although ultimately contemporary, could actually be anywhere their imaginations care to take them and adults will relish the simplicity of the stories and illustrations which hark back to times gone by.
