Product Description

Publisher: Birlinn (Dec 2011)

Author: Gary Smailes

Gary Smailes explores the darker side of Scottish history in this entertaining and informative book, written for children from 9–12. Featuring 25 true stories from the sixteenth century to the present day, Scottish Criminals introduces a motley crew of Scots (as well as a couple of heroes who might not have been so heroic after all), who have made their infamous mark in history – from pirates and murderers to thieves, outlaws and even cannibals. All are vividly brought to life by award-winning children’s illustrator Scoular Anderson. (pb)
