Translated by JAMES ROBERTSON. Illustrated by AXEL SCHEFFLER.

The Gruffalo said it wid come tae nae guid
If a gruffalo roamed in the deep mirk widd.
How no, how no? Because, hae nae doot,
The Muckle Mad Moose will find ye oot.

But wan snawy nicht the Gruffalo's Wean ignores whit her father has tellt her and tippy-taes oot intae the cauld. Efter aw, there's nae such thing as the Muckle Mad Moose... is there?

When Itchy Coo's Scots version of The Gruffalo was published in 2012 it immediately became a Scottish children's bestseller. Now, in the same format and using the same rich Scots vocabulary that has thrilled thousands of readers, the sequel is here. The Gruffalo books are among the most popular children's titles ever published, and James Robertson's Scots translations of them capture their warmth and excitement while adding a special Scottish dimension that weans and grown-ups alike just love.
