The Broons’ Burns Night
By (author) Broon Family
Robert Burns was born on 25th January, 1759 in Ayr, Scotland. He wrote the famous poems “To a Mouse”, “Holy Wullie”, “Tam O’Shanter”, “Ae Fond Kiss”, among many more. His use of the Scots language, his tone and the fact he speaks for ‘everyman’, and his prolific writing, make Burns enormously popular, with wide international appeal. Endorsed by the Burns Federation, this book is a guide on how to organise your own Burns’ Night at home – from the shopping list you must take to buy the necessaries for the plentiful recipes, to ‘How to do the Gay Gordons’ by Joe, to music and poetry from Burns throughout. The book is illustrated throughout with comic strips from Scotland’s first family, “The Broons”.
