Mairi and Seumas

Sorry, You’re Too Wee!

The first in a brand new series of children’s books set in Uist


The Outer Hebridean islands of North Uist, South Uist and Benbecula form a magical playground for little twins, Mairi and Seumas.

The beautiful islands are steeped in their own traditions and culture, just waiting for Seumas and Mairi to discover.

The twins stay each summer with Granny and Grandpa, who make their holidays a journey of discovery and excitement.

Mairi and Seumas Adventures in Uist  is a brand new series of stories for little children set amid Uist’s stunning landscapes, wildlife, traditions, history and culture.

Sorry, You’re Too Wee!  is the first in the series, where Granny and Grandpa take the twins to the Highland Games for the first time.

Games Day is an important occasion on the islands, so Mairi and Seumas are desperate to take part in all the activities.  Unfortunately it seems they’re just too wee…until they discover the children’s games.

Sorry, You’re Too Wee is 28pp full colour, A4 size with card cover. RRP £7.99

STOP PRESS Due to popular demand we plan to produce Sorry, You’re Too Wee! In Gaelic next year.
