It's Only Ink! Glen Robbie
It's Only Ink!
Deep in the Highlands of Scotland lies a wondrous wee village called Glen Robbie. No one knows exactly where or when. This magical place, on the anniversary of ten thousand moons, is today filled with citizens who search for someone not of their village to help. If they don't, Glen Robbie will vanish. They have very little time. The caring fairies begin their search. They try and fail time and time again. Does the fate of this teeny village rest on the shoulders of two ambassadors--Kera and Podwink? Will the fox, whose favorite treat are fairy wings, catch them before they can complete their mission?
T. E. Watson uses aspects from the dialects of Scotland. And includes a "Scottish Words & Places" glossary in the back of the book. The beautiful and colorful drawings by Steve Ferchaud are inspiring and eye-catching. The detail is glorious.
T. E. Watson is the author of over 92 books for children. Glen Robbie is his latest tale and is sure to be a classic.
This reviewer thoroughly enjoyed "Glen Robbie/A Scottish Fairy Tale" by T. E. Watson, and highly recommends it for readers of all ages.
