'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 midge -- including a puffin, a Scottie dog, 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.
Rebecca Colby lives in North Yorkshire, England, with her husband and children. There Was a Wee Lassie Who Swallowed a Midgie is her first book. Kate McLelland is an accomplished printmaker. She trained in illustration at Edinburgh College of Art.
