The first new Katie Morag book in seven years received its official global launch today (Monday 1st September) at a special ceremony to mark the opening of the High School of Dundee Nursery, in Dundee. In a move which is sure to cause excitement and anticipation in children – and adults! – across Scotland and beyond, author and illustrator Dr Mairi C Hedderwick unveiled the Katie Morag Treasury, the 15th book in the much loved children’s series, after officially opening the brand-new, £1m nursery. Lucky children at the new facility became the envy of boys and girls across the nation when the author read them an excerpt from one of the feisty little girl from Struay’s newest adventures, contained in the new compendium which features a whole host of familiar characters, as well as six folk tales from the popular Katie Morag CBeebies TV series, accompanied by Dr Hedderwick’s illustrations for the show.
