Gangin on a Bear Hunt

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)
