Wee Gillis lived in Scotland, but he didn't have one home. Part of the year he lived in the Highlands and stalked stag with his father's people. The rest of the year he lived in the Lowlands and herded cattle with his mother's people. And when Wee Gillis finally had to choose his future home, he used what he learned from both sides of his family to solve the problem to everyone's satisfaction.
This book tells the story of a young boy raised by two sets of relations, one set in the Highlands of Scotland and one set in the Lowlands. One set hunts deer and Wee Gillis learns a certain skill set while deer hunting. He learns a different skill set with his lowland relations. And when he is grown up, he is brought half-way up a hill that is half-way between the Highlands and the Lowlands and is asked to choose where he will spend his life.
How Wee Gillis makes his choice and the role that an enormous bagpipe plays in his decision make up the bulk of the text. It's a fun story that also shows kids how life can change and how you can discover skills you didn't know you had--all of which leads to a delightful conclusion.
Publishers Weekly, 2006-06-05 Munro Leaf aficionados will also appreciate the Caldecott Honor book Wee Gillis by Leaf, illus. by Robert Lawson, in a handsome paper-over-board edition, starring the title hero, torn between becoming a Highlander who stalks stags like his father, or raising long-haired cows like his mother, a Lowlander. Pen-and-inks capture the boy's comic inner struggle with outer shenanigans. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
