Author(s): Rebecca Colby

Picture Books

'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.
