5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 24 Nov 2012
By K&JF

This book is great! It's a really funny tongue in cheek scottish adaptation of the well loved tale. Adults and kids will laugh out loud. I plan to buy this for Christmas for numerous friends and relatives, some of whom don't have kids, but will love this version !

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 8 Feb 2013
By A. I. Mackenzie VINE VOICE
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! 18 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recommend this book to any Scot who has read "The Gruffalo" in English. It is wonderfully translated, and makes you feel all warm inside! I laughed out loud several times and have never been prouder of my native tongue! It's not in the Robert Burns type of Scots, but in the dialect of today, which makes it relevant and funny at the same time. Kids AND adults will love it, it is a familiar story to most, and read out loud makes it even better! Buy it!!

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!

We bought this for our nursery class who already have the English version of the Gruffalo as one of their favourite books. I don't know who loves this Scots version more, the children or the teachers. The text rhymes and scans perfectly and is a fantastic way to introduce the Scots language to young children. If you're only thinking about buying it... then do it, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever 11 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well worth all the stars. This book is so clever, though perhaps a little lost on children. Never mind all scots adults will love it. By changing only a few words from the original text, they have made this a hilarious read. More please!

5.0 out of 5 stars A delight! 4 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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!
