Guid Morning!/Guid Nicht!

The first LGBTQ+ children’s book written in Scots. Named Scots Children’s Book of the Year 2023 at the Scots Language Awards.

In Guid Mornin! A young boy is awake before his mums and sister. It’s too early to make a sound…but what’s that noise?! Two rumbling tummies need to be fed! The boy and his cat have fun starting their day – all by themselves. 

In Guid Nicht! A young girl is trying to get ready for bed, but her puppy thinks it’s time to play. Tired of being ignored, the puppy steals her teddy bear. Under the table, over the chair, her dads give chase and try to rescue bear. It seems puppy is getting to play after all!
