There was a wee lassie who swallowed a midgie.
I don’t know why she swallowed the midgie,
So teeny and squidgy!

In this hilarious twist on a much-loved rhyme, the wee lassie swallows a succession of Scotland's favorite creatures to catch that peskie midge -- including a puffin, a Scottie dog, seal, and even Nessie! After all that, she can't still be hungry...can she?

Kate McLelland's funny, engaging illustrations bring to life this uniquely Scottish version of a classic rhyme.

(Ages 3 to 6 years)
