This is a very simple tale for younger children or children with additional support needs, with plenty of interaction and repetitions to keep the listeners engaged.
‘There are many stories in Scotland and throughout the world about “The Little People” stealing things. I have taken this motif and created a wee story that uses simple props. The story is aimed at younger primary and pre-school years, but it is also suited for an inter-generational audience, as older audience members will enjoy watching the children join in. It is also a good story for general family audiences and for audiences that include people with additional support needs.’
