Animal ABC: [a Scots Alphabet] by Susan Rennie
The Animal ABC is aimed especially at young children from pre-school to lower primary, but its humour and warmth will appeal to readers right up to adult level. This ABC is the perfect introduction to the 26 letters of the alphabet, to a range of familiar and exotic creatures, and to some key Scots words used in everyday conversation. Susan Rennie's carefully chosen phrases introduce the reader to: o a drookit draigon in a dub o wabbit wasps washin windaes o unicorns unner umberellaes and a whole menagerie of other funny, friendly and only slightly ferocious beasts. Karen Sutherland's striking illustrations take the words one stage further, beautifully complementing them in a book that will be returned to again and again as a source of pleasure and learning for both children and adults alike.
