A book adaptation of Licketyspit’s stage production of Molly Whuppie. Adapted from the traditional Scottish tale by Virginia Radcliffe. Illustrated by Catherine Lindow.

“Once upon a time there was a little girl called Molly Whuppie. She lived in a house beside the sea with her Mother and her sister Ella. They played games like tig, hide ‘n’ seek. They sang and they danced. They paddled and they swam. They built sandcastles and sand-mermaids and they told each other poems.

“Molly’s little house was at the edge of the Great Mountain and the Great Mountain was covered with thick forest. One day Molly climbed to the top of the tallest tree beside the house and looked up. Suddenly, for the first time, she saw a castle, at  the top of the mountain. She could just see its golden towers peeking out over the treetops…”

Molly Whuppie dance, Molly Whuppie sing!

Molly Whuppie ran through the woods and she went to see the king!

For brave and bold children everywhere!
