Thi Dundee Gruffalo’s Bairn: The Gruffalo’s Child in Dundee Scots

By (author) Julia Donaldson; Illustrated by Axel Scheffler

In 2015, following on from the huge success of James Robertson’s Scots translation of The Gruffalo, Itchy Coo published four dialect versions: the Orkney, Shetland, Doric and Dundee Gruffalos have all proved immensely popular as celebrations of the Scots language’s astonishing regional diversity.Matthew Fitt’s Dundonian version of The Gruffalo is now followed by Thi Dundee Gruffalo’s Bairn. A cautionary tale about what happens when a small Gruffalo leaves the comfort of its cave and sets off into the dark wood on a wintry night, this is sure to be another big hit in Dundee and with Dundonian speakers wherever they bide.
