• The Fox and the Grapes - English/Scottish Gaelic (4-7 years)

Bilingual text in English and Scottish Gaelic 

This is a retelling of Aesop's fable, 'The Fox and the Grapes' which gives us the saying 'That's just sour grapes!'

With a short, repetitive text and bold, humorous illustrations, this is a great way to start learning about Aesop's fables.

Dylan Gibson's vivid illustrations are full of wonderful things to look at. As the Fox tries again and again to reach the grapes, all around other animals are busy doing their own thing. The hedgehogs will have readers laughing out loud as they get ever closer, watching the Fox. The smallest hedgehog’s attempt to help the Fox provides great new possibilities for discussion on top of the question of how we should deal with not getting what we want.
