Description

This is a gift set containing a plush doll and a mini edition of the book.

'There was a wee lassie who swallowed a midgie.
I don't know why she swallowed the midgie,
So teeny and squidgy!'

In this hilarious twist on a much-loved rhyme, the wee lassie swallows a succession of Scotland's favourite creatures to catch that peskie midgie -- including a puffin, a Scottie dog, a seal, and even Nessie!

After all that, she can't still be hungry. Can she?

Kate McLelland's funny, engaging illustrations bring to life this uniquely Scottish version of a classic rhyme.
