Welcome to the Thistle Games, Scotland’s best Highland games, where you’ll meet lots of friendly folk and learn some fun Scots words.
Everyone joins in to dance, jump, sprint or even HIRPLE over the line. But watch out you don’t get MINGIN and look like a NUMPTY. And cover your LUGS if the pipe band is gie-in it LALDY!
This funny story, told in bright rhyming verse, is full of the lively Scottish characters you’ve met in Thistle Street and Thistle Sands, plus a whole host more. Packed with detail to spot on each page, the warm illustrations will make children want to high jump, Highland dance and toss the caber!
