Of course it was Book Week Scotland last week! (A very busy time, hence why I’m posting lots today to catch up!) And to celebrate this special week in our calendar, Aberdeen City Libraries asked me to record my favourite story to share with younger readers (aged 7 to 11) and young adults/older adults too of course!
Well that is Tatterhood and I’ve never heard her summed up better than the post from Aberdeen City Libraries, below:
“As the days grow short and the nights draw in, local storyteller Pauline Cordiner delivers a special retelling of Norwegian folk tale Tatterhood for Book Week Scotland. There’s kings and queens, princes and princesses, trolls, some mischief from the fairy folk and our hero Tatterhood. She doesn’t care how she looks or acts and somehow saves the day with only her courage, her goat and her wooden spoon!! So coorie in, get comfy and enjoy this special pre-recorded session that is perfect for young readers aged 7 to 11 (and anyone else wanting a much needed dose of happily ever after).”
