'The Little Doughman'

Ma tha clann òg agad, seo an leabhar Gàidhlig a tha còir agad a cheannach dhaibh. Ach thoir an aire - bidh agad ri leughadh a-rithist ’s a-rithist ’s a-rithist.
Raghnall MacIlleDhuibh, An t-Albannach

‘If you have young children, this is the Gaelic book you should buy them. But be warned – you will be asked to read it to them again, and again, and again.’ Ronald Black, The Scotsman

About the book

When the teacher makes some dough for the children to play with, she has no idea of the trouble that will follow when it comes to life at night! Beautifully illustrated throughout with artwork that will appeal to children of all ages.
