Buy Will There Be Puffins?
The Mouat family, Robert and Barbara, left Shetland in 1922 with their first five children; they travelled to New Zealand and settled in Timaru. Like the puffins that come and go with the seasons, Shetlanders continue to feel the strong tug of their homeland. The idea for this story was launched from John and Gay’s family returning to Shetland and their daughter
feeling a strong sense of identity and heritage.The illustrator, Sarah Harmon, from a strong Scottish background, visited Shetland to immerse herself in the landscapes, the wool and the people. Her magical images have so much to explore.
