We’re chuffed to bits to share our July-December 2016 catalogue for Pokey Hat—Cranachan’s imprint for children’s fiction.

These braw books have been especially chosen to form our new historical children’s fiction series—Yesteryear. The series focuses exclusively on children’s and young adult historical fiction with all three of our titles being set in bonnie Scotland.
The Yesteryear books provide wonderful opportunities to support projects and cross-curricular work in the classroom; a  Reflective Reading Resource Pack for schools is in development for each title.
We’re sure that you will enjoy reading these new titles and that in sharing these books, whether at school, at home, or cooried under the covers, that the story in history will be brought to life.
