King o the Midden is back, and mankier than ever, with his cast of grimy guests, like Sergeant Snoddy (fae Kirkcaldy), exploding fairies and a hungry hairy mammoth. Brewing belly laughs for kids and adults alike, this collection of ridiculous rhymes is not for the faint-humoured.

Marking the 20th anniversary of Itchy Coo, and devilishly doodled by Bob Dewar, this collection of musings from mischievous Scots writers covers everything from aliens to sport, family life to superheroes and how it feels to be a fish 'Swimmin in batter'.
