Welcome to Thistle Street, a bustling wee high street in a Scottish seaside town, where you’ll meet lots of friendly folk and some fun Scots words. Join us for a daunder down the street as people go through their day, trying to avoid a stramash on the way to school, having a good blether outside the bakers, and rushing indoors when the weather gets dreich.

This funny story is told in bright rhyming verse and full of the lively characters who work and live on the street, from a grumpy greengrocer and a busy vet to schoolchildren and even a strong man! Packed with detail to spot on each page, the warm illustrations will draw children into the friendly neighborhood of Thistle Street.
