Great Highland Games Chase

The Great Highland Games Chase

Floris Books, 2024

There’s a great Highland Games chase afoot when Wee Rascal, a cheeky Scottie dog, runs off with a delicious-looking hat! Dodging out-of-puff pipers, cake-covered grandads, runaway coos and dizzy Highland dancers, Wee Rascal leads an increasingly hilarious pursuit through a Scottish Highland Games. With humorous text from author Kate Abernethy and lively illustrations from Laura, this is a fun and memorable read.
