Format: Paperback
Most parents will be familiar with the Gruffalo and Julia Robertson. Her books are great, the language entertaining. So taking on the job of a Scots version must have been fairly daunting.
It is a complete success, the Scots a mix of both East and West coast.
For anyone familiar with Scots this is a great buy, one for your Scottish granny to read you.

Lovely book to teach children and adults alike the scots words for fox, owl, mouse etc! Great to keep these words going in our children.

I bought this book as a funny gift for a Scottish friend. I loved it, as I am fan of regional accents and dialects, and I think she will too! I think it is a brilliant idea and very well executed.

By Steven Brown TOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 Jan. 2013
Format: Paperback
Got this for my son as he loves the Gruffalo/Gruffalo's Child, and it has instantly become his favourite version.

The story is, of course, the classic Gruffalo, only this time the mouse encounters a Tod and a Hoolet, instead of a Fox and Owl. The words are great, and it's easy to read with a scottish accent.

My son very quickly picked up some of the words right away, in particular enjoying the fact that the snake slippit rather than slithered.

In summary, a fantastic Scots twist on the wonderful Gruffalo tale...

Sorry if your not Scots(re' title)

But don't let it put you off! Well you might but you can also get the full English version too! Both are equally just as good,kids will love it, but as a Scottish....Ahem!....adult I loved this book!!! I can indulge myself in the mither tongue and love the recaction of my kids whlst I am reading it. I would highly recommend this to any Scots as they will-as I did-love telling a beautiful story to their weans.
And recommend anyone to by the English equivilant if the Scots is not to your liking.

My hubby is Scottish and my daughter loves to do the accent and words with him. She thinks she sounds like her Scottish cousins :) I sound ridiculous. ....

Chose this for my young nephew - he already has The Gruffalo and I thought it good to keep the Scots language alive - the grown ups enjoyed it too!

I love all things Scotland after studying there for four years, I also love 'The Gruffalo' - so I couldn't resist this!

I have to admit I am 25 and don't have any children so this was a guilty pleasure for me but I would absolutely recommend to anyone (Scottish or not!)

Scots will take great pleasure in reading this in their own dialect, if not... hours of fun reading it in a new way!

Just as good quality wise, something quirky and entertaining for your bookshelf. Enjoy!
