A Tiny Wee Puff

We were delighted to announce that as part of our virtual Pyjama Party on Friday 20th November we launched our storybook called ‘A Tiny Wee Puff’. This book has been written as part of a collaborative project funded by the Scottish Book Trust to celebrate Book Week Scotland 2020 and was read by local author Merryn Glover.
