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

 
Take a deep breath and prepare for a journey through all twelve days of Yuletide with a cast of skaters skooshin, lassies birlin, sheep a-shooglin and the all-important five gowden rings.
 
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).
 
Perfect for children and parents to read and sing along to, throughout the festive season.
