The first in a new series of ‘OneCity’ books (crime and London to follow in 2009), this is a cracking collection of specially commissioned stories for upper primary school children, by nine of the best children’s writers, who are either based in Scotland or have a Scottish background. All stories will include themes relevant to the work of the OneCityTrust. It is beautifully illustrated by author and illustrator John Fardell (Canongate Kelpies, Viz).
