There Was a Wee Lassie Who Swallowed a Midgie
By

Rating
'There was a wee lassie who swallowed a midgie. I don't know why she swallowed the midgie, So teeny and squidgy!' In this hilarious twist on a much-loved rhyme, the wee lassie swallows a succession of Scotland's favourite creatures to catch that peskie midgie -- including a puffin, a Scottie dog, a seal and even Nessie! After all that, she can't still be hungry. Can she? Kate McLelland's funny, engaging illustrations bring to life this uniquely Scottish version of a classic rhyme.

Reviews

'A nice idea; the pictures reminiscent of the sort of lovely old Polish posters that students used to pin up in memory of that year off in Krakow.' -- The Times 'The repetition and humour are ideal for reading aloud and, combined with Kate McLelland's funny, engaging illustrations, would be very popular with young children.' -- St John's Church Magazine
