Ruan the Little Red Squirrel

Ruan the Little Red Squirrel
Published by Forth Books, £5.99

Ruan is a little red squirrel who lives in the tall, tall trees in a beautiful forest park. He loves his home and plays all day with his friends.

When he spots some tents in a clearing, Ruan goes for a closer look – he’s not afraid of being a little bit naughty! But when the campers pack him up in their picnic basket, he’s in for a bigger adventure than he thought!

Pretty soon, Ruan realises he is lost as the campers take him all over Scotland. He meets lots of new friends who live in lots of different places, but will he ever find his way back home?

Aimed at ages 5 to 10, Ruan the Little Red Squirrel can either be read aloud to younger children or independently by more confident readers.

It is available to buy from all good bookshops, a variety of visitor attractions in Scotland and online retailers across the UK.

The Kilted Coo

The Kilted Coo
Published by Forth Books, £5.99

This is Drew. He’s a great big coo.
All he does each day is moo and chew.
It might seem funny to me and you,
But moo and chew is what coos do.

Farmer Martin’s not too happy with Drew and he isn’t sure quite what to do.
Visitors to his farm are not amused that their hats and scarves are being chewed.

He and his wife must find a way to stop Drew chomping away each day,
So read along to find out just how a kilt ends up on a Highland cow!

A fun-filled and engaging story about a mischievous Highland cow with an appetite for chewing things he shouldn’t! With bright illustrations and easy to read text, this is a farm-yard tale with a tartan twist that is sure to be a hit with younger children.

Ideally suited to read aloud, the rhymes will make story time a laugh-out-loud delight, while the quirky farmyard illustrations bring a Scottish farm full of lots of cheeky animals to life.

Key age range 3-6 years.
