by Susan Rennie, illustrated by Matthew Land
£5.99   paperback  Floris Books (Kelpies) (2015)

The 12 Days O "On the 1st day o Yuletide,
My true luve gied tae me,
A reid robin in a rowan tree."

The stunningly beautiful illustrations bring this Scots version of the ever-popular Christmas song to life in vivid detail. Inspired by the traditional verse, this adaptation features easy-to-understand (and pronounce) Scots words and creatures, including hoolets (owls) and bonnie doos (beautiful doves).
