The 10 Children's Books You Need to Create Lifelong Book LoversA decade ago, I worked with a beloved but very opinionated American editor who would fly over to Scawt-Land and spend a few nights at GlioriSchloss, drinking my malts and discussing books, authors, morals or lack of and all manner of things by our fireside. Sometimes, she would bring gifts of books for the household. Since Leaf and Lawson were both US citizens working in the first half of the last century, it was hardly surprising that their joint vision of Scotland was a somewhat romantic one, but reading on, Wee Gillis was so endearing and timeless that even this most sensitive of Scots found that she could forgive a little whimsy on the Celtic twilight front. True, there were kilts and tartan a-plenty, and even a set of bagpipes of epic dimensions, but for a book written on the eve of the second world war, its themes of tribal rivalry and questions of citizenship and belonging are handled with admirable tact and lightness of touch. Wee Gillis is also funny — mordantly so, with depictions of dentally-challenged and paunchy Lowlanders contrasting with hawk-nosed Highlanders; blood relatives but also rivals for the loyalties of the eponymous small hero.
