Paw Broon is just the man tae tell ye a story or twa aboot the problems that arise - getting use o'the one bathroom, getting yer ane choice o'programme on the telly, fechtin' over the last drop o'soup in the pot . . . and that's just for starters!

The Broons Guide Tae... Family Planning is a tongue-in-cheek look at the perils and blessings of a large family. Coupled with classic illustrations by the legendary Dudley D. Watkins, this is Scotland's Favourite Family seen as never before.

The Broons are billed as 'the happy family that makes every family happy'. Though they are ten in number, the family enjoys staying together in the small tenement flat of 10 Glebe Street, Auchentogle. The family is made up of Paw and Maw Broon who are parents to eight children! Two older sons, Hen and Joe, and two grown-up daughters, Daphne and Maggie. The younger children are Horace, who is the brains of the family, and the Twins (identical boys) plus the Bairn, a cut down version of Maw and wiser than her years. Last, but by no means least, is the roguish Granpaw Broon. The Broons cartoon strip appears every week in the Sunday Post newspaper and in 2016 celebrates its 80th anniversary.
