Poking Seaweed with a Stick and Running Away from the Smell

by Alison Whitelock

eBook

Alison Whitelock dreamed of shooting her father with a sawn-off shotgun. Her brother planned to use the longest knife in the cutlery drawer, and her mother tried to poison him with out-of-date tranquillisers. This wee book is a bittersweet account of growing up in Scotland in the strange and brutal kingdom we call home. But "Poking Seaweed with a Stick" is anything but a tale of childhood suffering; it is an enchanted Scottish tale that will have you smiling through your tears and laughing till you cry. "Remarkably life-affirming." - "Sydney Morning Herald"
