In 2019 we marked the 20th anniversary of The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson with a very special Authors Live broadcast during Book Week Scotland. James Robertson reads his Scots translation of The Gruffalo, and Catriona Lexy Campbell brings the Gaelic translation, An Gruffalo, to life. We also hear from lots of pupils all around the country who share their favourite Scots and Gaelic words!
