new novel "Fuaran Ceann an t-Saoghail" ('The Spring at the World's

his daughter launches her first-ever book for children, called "A'
Chraobh Beoingeilidh", which is about spaghetti growing on
Anngus Peter says he is
delighted that Steaphanaidh is following in his footsteps.
Steaphanaidh puts Enid Blyton down as one of her
She said: "When I was much
younger I always loved 'The Faraway Tree' by Enid Blyton and always
wanted to be one of the characters in the book so that I could
visit all the different lands that were found up the tree.
Hopefully, other younger children will now enjoy travelling with me
to Italy to plant spaghetti trees."
All the illustrations in
Steaphanidh's book were done by her mum, Liondsaidh.
Steaphanaidh will be reading
from the book and talking about story-writing at the Gaelic School
in Glasgow in the afternoon and will then join her father for a
double launch of both books at the offices of the Gaelic Books
