There’s a Hole in my Bagpipes, Wee Hamish, Wee Hamish
By Kate McLelland
‘There’s a hole in my bagpipes, wee Hamish, wee Hamish,
There’s a hole in my bagpipes, wee Hamish, a hole!
Then stitch it wee Lachie, wee Lachie, wee Lachie,
Then stitch it wee Lachie, wee Lachie, stitch it!
With what shall I stitch it? wee Hamish, wee Hamish,
With what shall I stitch it? wee Hamish, with what?’
A surreal and hilarious Scottish twist on a much-loved rhyme. Wee Hamish tries to solve his bagpiping friend’s difficulties with ever-more brilliantly bizarre solutions involving a hungry stag, prickly thistles, lumpy porridge, a dirty broadsword, a nervous red squirrel and a sleepy Highland cow.
Kate McLelland, illustrator of best-selling picture book There was a Wee Lassie Who Swallowed a Midgie, brings a Highland castle and its cast of Scottish characters and animals to life in her bold and colourful style. This quirky and fun picture book, created in Scotland, is a unique adaptation of the classic rhyme There’s a Hole in my Bucket. Children from Scotland and beyond will love to sing along!
Kate McLelland is an accomplished illustrator and printmaker. She trained in illustration at Edinburgh College of Art. She is the illustrator of bestselling picture book There Was A Wee Lassie Who Swallowed A Midgie and the much-loved My First Scottish board book series, which includes Colours, Things That Go, Animals and Numbers.
