Thanks Smurphie for the book, the dictionary, the postcard and the bookmark! I haven't found an atlas yet that has Banchory in it, so will have to google or wiki it.
The book arrived this morning and I was lucky enough to be able to lie in bed and read it (lovely hubby even brought me breakfast). I hadn't read the book since I was a kid so I didn't remember what happened, so I enjoyed it for the story as well as the language.
I think Roald Dahl really suits the Scots dialect! They've both got a poetic way with words, I think.
I've PMed gillg for an address so will post it Monday - meanwhile my hubby's mother and sister, who are staying with us at the moment, are reading it. :)

Sorry for the delay on this book.

I loved the illustrations, and the feel of the words in the book.

And my god, it has given me respect for children and adults who are learning to read...it really is quite difficult and you just KNOW that there is a great free flowing story there, if you could only get the words to string together.

Will post out to ZAS tomorrow.

Thanks smurphie - you're a star

Absolutely hilarious! My daughter tried reading this herself, but spent more time referring to the Scots/English dictionary, so we've been reading it at bedtime. I'm not sure if she's been laughing at my seriously bad attempt at a Scottish accent, or the book itself, but its been great fun! Thanks for sharing Smurphie, its on its way back to you.
