The illustrations are gorgeous and evocative, worth the price of the book. The text is rather thin, which I didn't expect because the Katie Morag books are so lively -- but it doesn't really matter. Except that my book is supposedly a "new edition", copyrighted in 2009, yet makes no reference to the epochal event in the history of Vatersay -- the building of the causeway to the Isle of Barra, ending the isolation (literally) of the tiny island and saving it from total depopulation. That particular omission stands out to me because of how fervent in their gratitude to "EU money" the Barrans were in 2004 when I visited the island, but there may be others. Life goes on very much the same in the Hebrides, except when it doesn't. ( )
