‘We loved Rachel’s first book and couldn’t wait for this one to arrive. We pre-ordered it and what a treat when it arrived a day early! My little one loves The Kilted Coo, its rhyming story is great fun to read and plenty of laughs. We love all of the tartan!’

‘My little boy loves to read Ruan the Little Red Squirrel with his daddy and baby brother. It is a family favourite! When we have family days away I often ask him “I wonder if Ruan lives here?” and he takes great delight in looking for trees and shouting at the top of his lungs “there are no trees here!” I think, well I know, that this will be a book they will read throughout the years and remember with fondness as they grow older. Thank you for writing it!

‘Maisie loves The Kilted Coo! She laughs like a pooch when I read it to her, especially when I goo MOO! 10 out of 10 from me and Maisie!


I bought this book (Ruan the Little Red Squirrel) for my daughter and it is one of her favourites – she loves animals and there are lots different animals in it as the story moves around Scotland. It’s a great way for kids to learn about different animals (puffins, seals, otters, hares and ‘Beltie’ cows) and the kind of habitats they live in. We also like to camp so it’s a good story because it reminded her of our recent holiday and she thought she might have seen Ruan on our campsite. Because the story repeats throughout, she now tells me wherever we go that Ruan can’t live here ‘because there are no trees’! Highly recommended as a story to read together.

I bought this book (Ruan the Little Red Squirrel) for my Primary 1 class and used it as the main focus for our Scottish topic. The children loved learning of Ruan’s adventure and the friends he met along the way and the story allowed me to introduce new learning about different environments and habitats. Ruan is still a popular talking point in P1A and is read regularly in our library!
