We are really pleased to say that our latest book has just been published.  This story was one of the winning entries in the Buchan Heritage poetry competition last year and Aaron received a grant from the Doric Board to help get it turned into a book.  It's a great little story about a small robin who goes on a quest to find the owner of a lost egg!  You can learn about different birds and their eggs as you join Little Robin on her journey around the garden from bird to bird.  It's a heart warming story according to Sheena Blackhall.  And the illustrations are very beautiful too!
