Just like millions of children around the world, each Christmas Oor Wullie sits down and writes a letter to Santa. This year, his letter is a little bit special because Oor Wullie has written a poem to Santa and is sharing it with his legions of fans. Full of humour and fun, Oor Wullie tells Santa about all the things he's done during the year and how he's been as good as gold - except for a lapse or two here and there, like the time he accidentally knocked off PC Murdoch's hat again. Oh yes, and that time with his catapult last summer. Apart from that he's tried really hard to be good. Honest! Set out in a new format with beautiful new illustrations, Oor Wullie's Letter to Santa will appeal to the many thousands of Oor Wullie fans around the world. But will Santa deliver a present to Oor Wullie this Christmas? And how will he reply to Wullie's heartfelt poem? With a poem of his own, of course!

John Boyle was born and raised in Scotland but he could never feel Scottish. His parents were poor immigrants from the West of Ireland who came to Scotland to find work and eventually settled in Paisley, where John was the first of six children. Galloway Street beautifully captures the poverty and the rough humour of the family's life in the Paisley tenements, the songs and stories of their Irish Catholic relatives and the often uneasy relationships with their Scottish Protestant neighbours. It also shows how the boy is marked at the age of ten by an extended stay with his spinster aunt on the remote island of Achill, as he begins to understand the life his parents left behind. This is a book about exile and belonging, about the poignancy of growing up Irish in Scotland, so close to the place your mother still calls home. It is a truthful, funny and moving evocation of a unique place and time, experienced through the eyes of a child.
