Press Reviews

'A gripping story that is simply packed from cover to cover with historical detail.'-- Midwest Book ReviewNicely illustrated, simple enough for a young reader to get a glimpse into Scottish history. This would be a good pre-reader to those who may enjoy, but are a little too young for the I Survived books. 4/5-- Youth Services Book Review'This is a beautifully illustrated and fun book that explores an exciting but lesser known story from Scottish history in an accessible and interesting way that parents and children will enjoy reading together.'--
