Robert Burns and All That
By (author) Alan Burnett; Illustrated by Scoular Anderson
This is a fun and informative look at Scotland’s national bard and the times in which he lived. Meet the lassies who stole Burns’ heart and the creatures that inspired his poetry. Join his quest to rescue a lost musical treasure – and get chased by ghouls as he explores the dark side of life. On a more serious note, find out why Burns supported the French Revolution, discov-er the origins of Burns Night and learn what’s really inside a haggis.
