Wee Rabbie’s Rhymes: Burns for Wee Folk
Selected by James Robertson; Selected by Matthew Fitt; Illustrated by Karen Sutherland
Due to massive demand Itchy Coo is proud to publish this miniature edition collecting the work of Scotland’s National Bard. This board book is in the format of the hugely successful “Katie” series. Wee Rabbie’s “Rhymes” is unique in bringing the best-loved lines of the poet to the very youngest readers. A simple, funny, colourful introduction to Burns, Wee Rabbie’s “Rhymes” will entertain the bairns and encourage parents and teachers not only to recite the lines from the poems but perhaps also to sing the tunes to songs like “Ca the Yowes” and “Ye Banks and Braes”, “A Red, Red Rose” and, as a grand finale, “Auld Lang Syne”.
James Robertson and Matthew Fitt have written numerous books together in Scots, including Blethertoun Braes, King o the Midden, A Wee Book of Fairy Tales and A Moose in the Hoose. Karen Sutherland is an award-winning artist who is also the illustrator of the Katie books, as well as Animal ABC, A Moose in the Hoose and Eck the Bee.
