The Burry Man

This morning, I took the family to South Queensferry, near Edinburgh, to see an ancient tradition taking place called The Burry Man. Dating as far back as 1687, it has been performed on the second Friday in the month of August for nearly four centuries. A weird sight indeed, the Burry Man is dressed from head to ankle in burrs (the spikey seed case of the burdock plant) and then paraded through the streets of the town for nine hours. The purpose of The Burryman is unclear, the locals I spoke…

Maggy Scraggle Loves the Beautiful Ice-Cream Man

This was one of my favourite books as a kid, and I've never seen it for sale anywhere (my copy is possibly lost, or at the very least, tattered.) In addition to the characters having fabulous names that are delicious to say like "Prince Sintypuppa" and "King Jinko", the illustrations are fantastic. McDonald, Jill. (1978) Maggy Scraggle Loves…

I thought it may be interesting to post a couple of my favourite childhood books. The Pirates Tale is right up there in the list! The story was first featured in The Puffin Post in 1968 and was written by the 5 1/2 year old Janet Aitchison. In 1970 Penguin reprinted it in its on right, as a Puffin Picture book and they said " It contains all the ingredients that one little girl decided she would like to have in her ideal picture book. We hope you will agree that there have never been pirates…
