Bagpipe the Black Grouse loves admiring his glorious red eyebrows and his magnificent straight tail feathers. He feels sorry for his friend, Squeaker the Wood Mouse, with his boring brown fur and bendy tail. But Squeaker's help, along with brown-ness and bendy-ness, might be just what Bagpipe needs when he gets into some serious fox trouble. Starring two of Scotland's best-loved residents, an endangered black grouse and a wood mouse, this is a funny and heart-warming tale about valuing difference, from the author of Can't-Dance-Cameron.

Recensioner i media

'A delightfully funny and heartwarming story of two very unusual friends, animals who learn to understand their differences and work together. Charming illustrations luring the reader into the beauty of the Scottish countryside add to the appeal.' -- Armadillo 'A delicious fable, subtly given a new lease of life, absolutely fab!' -- Read It Daddy Praise for Can't-Dance-Cameron by Emily Dodd: 'A wonderful, gentle wee story about learning to believe in yourself, and discovering what you are good at.' -- Dorky Mum blog '... if you like your creatures resolutely Scottish, there is always The Grouse And The Mouse... which follows Bagpipe the puffed up and pompous grouse and Squeaker the wood mouse, as they find out just who really is the most magnificent animal in Scotland.' --Herald Scotland 'The illustrations by Kirsteen Harris-Jones work well. The setting is unmistakably Scottish, and the animals are beautifully depicted, with amusing facial expressions. This story would also be fun to read aloud, with a lot of opportunities for audience participation.' --Agnes Guyon, SLA
