Corrie's Capers is a children's picture book series celebrating Scotland with a lovely message which gently encourages young readers to experience life to the full and to try their best, whatever the challenge.

Alison Page’s stories were inspired by her own pet Westie and all raise money for the charity Mary’s Meals.

Mary's Meals serves a meal a day in school for children in some of the world’s poorest countries – providing vital nutrition and an incentive for them to get to class.

"We all loved having you in Primary 1 and the children very much enjoyed hearing your story and getting to meet a real live author!"

Meet Alison...

Alison has published four books – The Westie Fest in 2018, The Tattoo Toorie in July 2019, Corrie’s Curling Capers in September 2020 and Corrie’s Library Capers in July 2022. At an event you can hear a reading from Corrie’s Capers, learn more about where Alison finds her ideas, get tips for writing your own stories and hear about how these books support children in schools around the world! Each Corrie’s Capers book is relevant to multiple areas across the curriculum, so an event can complement your class’ learning in Literacy and English, Health and Wellbeing, Scots language and Social Studies. If the games hall is available you can also host your own West Highland Games or try out some indoor curling – all great fun. Alison is available for events at schools, libraries and nurseries, in person or online. “We all loved having you in Primary 1 and the children very much enjoyed hearing your story and getting to meet a real live author!”
