Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury’s classic We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, in Scots!
‘Scots linguist Susan Rennie has charmingly translated the much loved children’s classic into Scots. … An enjoyable re-imagining of the classic bed time story, as much fun for adults as it is for the wee bairns the book was written for.’ (Scottish Field)
We’re gangin on a bear hunt.
We’re gaun tae catch a braw yin.
Whit a bonnie day!
We’re no feart.
Translated into Scots by Susan Rennie
