'A lovely book with true Scottish flair that will be appreciated by both parents and children (especially parents who have had the joys of having a child in the beginning stages of learning an instrument).' -- Armadillo '... an amusing story, just packed with the beauty and wilderness of Scotland, the illustrations in soft watercolour enhancing each event as we follow Gregor. This book should do especially well across the border, but will touch the heart of anyone who loves Scotland.' -- Books for Keeps, September 2010.
About the Author
Angus Corby is a landscape architect who lives in Fife. Reading to his three daughters inspired him to illustrate and write a picture book for children. His grandfather was once a piper for the Duke of Hamilton and told many a good tale of his days playing at events across Scotland. Young Angus wanted to learn the bagpipes himself but discovered what a painful process it can be -- especially for everyone around him. Perseverence paid off, however and he's a proficient piper.

However, each time he starts playing he hears the same cry, 'You can't play here!' Not easily discouraged, Gregor tries various solutions to his dilema, each meeting with the same response,until he meets a nice lady who lets him play in her garden...
Lovely illustrations and a story that will ring true to many musicians whose parents persevered through the intial trials of learning an instument.
The ending is truly unexpected and maybe has a ring of truth about it...???????
