A first novel by acclaimed Fife poet, musician and songwriter, William Hershaw.

Tammy Norrie, the 'beastie' that inhabits the old fisherman's cottage in Northumberland, is the spirited narrator.

A unique well written, beautifully crafted story of fantasy and social history.

William Hershaw is Principal Teacher of English at Beath High Scool, Cowdenbeath.

In 2005 he won the Callum MacDonald Memorial Award for Poetry and in 2011 he was awarded the McCash Prize for Scots Poetry by Glasgow University.

In 2007 he collaborated with sculptor David Annand, writing the poem God The Miner which is inscribed on the statue The Prop as part of the Lochgelly Regeneration Project.

"His favourite themes of love and the morality of human decency are brought together with more than a touch of magic in this delightful debut. Hershaw’s recurring themes of hope with enduring, accepting love appear in the form of two fairy tales at the end. The text opens and closes with the Northumbrian folk song Dance to your Daddy creating a perfect narrative circle." Irene Brown EdinburghGuide.com.
