Your chance to win a Wee Shoo­bie chil­dren’s book

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

Last week the Re­former told how Ruther­glen singer Fraser Bruce had re­leased his first chil­dren’s book.

Wee Shoo­bie is about a small crea­ture try­ing to find oth­ers that look like him and where he came from, go­ing on an adventure along the way.

Now the Re­former has five copies of the book to give away in a great com­pe­ti­tion.

We’ve hid­den a Shoo­bie on a page of this week’s pa­per - once you’ve spot­ted where the Wee Shoo­bie is, let us know.

Email us at jonathan. ged­des@trin­i­tymir­, with Wee Shoo­bie Com­pe­ti­tion in the head­ing.

Grand­fa­ther Fraser first had the idea for the strange Shoo­bie crea­tures when he was a young­ster.

He de­cided to re­visit them a few years ago, when com­ing up with a story to tell his grand­kids.

The book is not just writ­ten by Fraser but il­lus­trated by him too, and he’s al­ready plan­ning a sec­ond book in the se­ries.

Fraser told the Re­former: “I wanted to do it just as a grand­fa­ther.

“It says at the start of the book that I could have drawn it over and over again but that was never the in­ten­tion.

“I wanted it to look like it was drawn on the kitchen ta­ble, to en­cour­age other grand­fa­thers to do the same.

“I’m too old to worry about mak­ing money from it. The grand­kids love it and that’s what it was done for.”
