The Association for Scottish Literary Studies

The Association for Scottish Literary Studies is an educational charity that aims to promote the study, teaching and writing of Scottish literature, and to further the study of the languages of Scotland. To these ends, ASLS publishes works of Scottish literature which have either been neglected or which merit a fresh presentation to a modern audience, and critical anthologies of both creative and non-fiction writing.

Product Description


Treasure Islands is an invaluable guide for parents, teachers, students, librarians, publishers, booksellers and all who wish young people to enjoy Scottish stories of quality. Compiled by teachers, Treasure Islands is the first critical examination of Scottish children's fiction. As well as handy reviews of 160 books, it contains suggested age and reading levels and the most up-to-date bibliographic information. In this comprehensive survey the emphasis falls naturally on recent work but older fiction is also included; titles range from 1824 to 2003, from Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson to Debi Gliori and J. K. Rowling. 

Looking for stories set in Edinburgh? How about Diana Hendry's You Can't Kiss It Better? Or Mollie Hunter's The Spanish Letters? A novel to accompany a project on Vikings? Try Marion Campbell's The Wide Blue Road or Naomi Mitchison's The Land the Ravens Found. Facing problems at home or in school? Read about Solomon in Theresa Breslin's Whispers in the Graveyard or Molly MacPherson in Jackie Kay's Strawgirl. Treasure Islands is a must if you want to explore the best in children's fiction.
