You Can't Play Here

Regular price $15.65

by Angus Corby

This is a humorous story about one boy's determination in the face of adversity. Young Gregor MacDonald is thrilled when he gets a set of bagpipes for his birthday. Now he can be just like Grandad. But each time he starts to play, an awful noise sounds, Honk-eeyyoww! And each time, he hears the same angry cry, 'You can't play here!'

Poor Gregor goes from house, to loch, to barn and to hillside disturbing people, until he finds acceptance in the most unlikely of places.

Recommended for ages 3-6 yrs.

Softcover, 32 pages; 8.25 x 10"
Floris Books.

Reviews

'A lovely book with true Scottish flair that will be appreciated by both parents and children (especially parents who have had the joys of having a child in the beginning stages of learning an instrument).'
-- Armadillo

'... an amusing story, just packed with the beauty and wilderness of Scotland, the illustrations in soft watercolour enhancing each event as we follow Gregor. This book should do especially well across the border, but will touch the heart of anyone who loves Scotland.'
