'Such a lovely translation of a brilliant adventure rhyme... This
is such a brilliant story and jings your kids will love hearing you
trip over the Scots words. BookBairn actually enjoys this version
more than the original -- I thinks Scots words are a bit more
descriptive and onomatopoeic than the original -- and we will
definitely be enjoying this one over and over again!'
