New book Celebrates 250th Anniversary of Scotland’s Greatest Storyteller – Sir Walter Scott

Dumfries and Galloway based Curly Tale Books is proud to present an accessible and enjoyable biography of Sir Walter Scott in the Year of the 250th Anniversary of his birth. 

The book, written by Alasdair Hutton, tells the story of the famous writer from his birth (Chapter 1 – in which Walter is born, and promptly nearly dies, several times) to his death (Chapter 12 – in which the nation mourns as Sir Walter Scott is laid to rest).

Detailing the aspirations, the rise to success and the family life of the great man, the book is filled with tales from his writing career and is a great introduction to Scott as an author.  Written in easily accessible language, this book is great for young people interested in history, as well as those who are already a fan of Scott’s work.

Beautifully illustrated in pen and ink throughout by Shalla Gray, Scotland’s Greatest Storyteller is a must-read as part of his 250th Anniversary celebrations.
