    Scotiana’s Books for Christmas : “Six Dinner Sid”…


    Big Bear Hug Nicholas Oldland Kids Can Press

    Many thanks

    and a big bear hug to Nathalie & Jean for their lovely interpretation of Jingle Bells !!!

    Jean, my grandson, who just turned 9 last month, started to learn English at his primary school in Toulouse.  Hear him sing Jingle Bells accompanied by his mother Nathalie on her metallophone and helped by Fabien his father and Ronan his brother.

    His grandfather Jean-Claude (my husband) took the photographs at Le Lann, the local garden center in Gradignan, south of Bordeaux and created this lovely video.

    Wishing you all , on behalf of Scotiana, a very Merry Christmas!

    I dedicate to them my last selection of books for Christmas 😉 I’m sure they will love this beautiful story and illustrations !


    To ensure reader satisfaction, try the following…’Six Dinner Sid’ has long been a favourite; cat enthusiasts have been raving over Sid and his devious behaviour since his first appearance in 1990. The book has now been reissued in a delightful small book format – and it’s perfect for bedtime (The Guardian, 12/9/00) –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    Book Description

    Six Dinner Sid has been settled at Pythagoras Place for some time – but what happens when all his six owners decide to go on holiday at the same time? How will Sid get his six dinners a day….? This Sid adventure has joined the original story and become a much-loved classic picture book.

    ‘The appetite for Sid’s cheeky charisma has never dulled.’ – Bookseller

    Illustrated in Inga Moore’s classic watercolour style, and told with gentle humour, this book is a must-have companion title to the classic bestseller Six Dinner Sid.

    Sid’s first adventure, Six Dinner Sid is a Smarties Award winner and is in the Daily Telegraph’s top 50 children’s books of all time.

    About the author

    Inga began illustrating while she was still at school where she had a constant and irresistible urge to liven up boring passages of Latin with cartoons, likewise physics and chemistry tests. It wasn’t until many years later, that she saw illustration as something you could do as a career. She had no formal training but she did have a good grounding in technical drawing and patience and discipline. She wrote and illustrated her first books in Australia and then returned to England. As well as writing her own books, she has illustrated several classics such as Wind in the Willows and The Secret Garden. She can’t see a time when she would want to stop making picture books – not altogether. It’s one of the most enjoyable things you can do!

    Inga Moore is one of my favourite book illustrators. Her wonderful illustrations of  The Secret garden and The Wind in the Willow enchant both adults and children !
