Bertie's Guide to Life and Mothers A Scotland Street Novel

LoveReading View on Bertie's Guide to Life and Mothers A Scotland Street Novel

Gently satirical and wonderfully perceptive, we are back for a 9th instalment in the eccentric lives of the residents of 44 Scotland Street, including the remarkably precocious six-year-old Bertie - whose seventh birthday is looming.

The characters are the strength of this series where not much of import happens but it’s easy to get totally hooked.

 

A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...

'Writing a daily novel is not easy, so to do so for ten years is small wonder. What I find so amazing about the 44 Scotland Street series is that McCall Smith continues to be so inventive, so funny and observant of modern mores, and he finds so many imaginative storylines. It’s a constant joy to read and in the soon-to-be seven-year-old Bertie he has created a truly original and  endearing character in modern literature. Pure genius.' - Neville Moir, Director of Polygon Publishing
