About this deal

The best-selling children's classics The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child were originally translated into the Scots language for Itchy Coo by James Robertson. His novel The Testament of Gideon Mack was long-listed for the Man Booker Prize in 2006 and featured on the Richard and Judy Book Club in 2007. In 2019 we marked the 20th anniversary of The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson with a very special Authors Live broadcast during Book Week Scotland. Itchy Coo is delighted to share that The Glasgow Gruffalo’s Wean has won the Scots Bairns Book o the Year at the Scots Language Awards 2021. I would highly recommend this to any Scots as they will-as I did-love telling a beautiful story to their weans.

I love this book, purchased for myself so that my Scottish boyfriend could read it to me and I could swoon over his accent. I am interested in history, politics and international affairs, Scottish literature, language and culture, and all these themes appear in my work for adults.

We also hear from lots of pupils all around the country who share their favourite Scots and Gaelic words!Translated by James Robertson and published by Itchy Coo, this new edition of The Gruffalo has been approved by Julia Donaldson and will delight both children and adults alike. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. As an extension activity, each week pupils can find and share a new Scots or Gaelic word with the class and the wall can be updated on a regular basis to celebrate these new words. James Robertson reads his Scots translation of The Gruffalo, and Catriona Lexy Campbell brings the Gaelic translation, An Gruffalo, to life. We know time is tight, so here is just one activity you could do before or after watching this event.
