Scottish Criminals

By (author) Gary Smailes; Illustrated by Scoular Anderson

Gary Smailes explores the darker side of Scottish history in this entertaining and informative book, written for children from 9-12. Featuring 25 true stories from the sixteenth century to the present day, Scottish Criminals introduces a motley crew of Scots (as well as a couple of heroes who might not have been so heroic after all), who have made their infamous mark in history – from pirates and murderers to thieves, outlaws and even cannibals. All are vividly brought to life by award-winning children’s illustrator Scoular Anderson.
