Language:
English
Genres:
Fiction & Literature, Childrens Fiction

Fairy-stories are always delightful but they gain an additional interest when they bear the stamp of the people among whom they circulated. This is certainly the case in Miss Grierson's books. Some, of course, are of the type common to most countries, but the majority are essentially Scottish. Miss Grierson has drawn them from all sources, folk-lore, minstrelsy, and legends.  The central figure of this fairy-tale is an oatmeal bannock! He is destined to be eaten, but our little hero is not that simple! He runs away from the family that has baked him. And as his travel begins he meets a lot of diffirent people and faces diffirent difficultes. What adventures are in store for him? Will he avoid his fate to be eaten? Read 'Wee Bannock', a wonderful Scottish fairy-tale and get the experience of being a Bannock!
