Written by SPT 04/07/2022

My Family is So Scottish is a beautiful picture book showing an inclusive representation of Scottish people, places and culture. Through its witty rhymes and energetic illustrations, this book perfectly highlights the joy, love and togetherness of Scottish people. 

With over 40 references of Scottish heritage, traditions and food, and featuring a gay wedding, energetic grandparents and a dad who loves poetry, this book really does represent much-needed modern version of the Scottish clan. 

Written and illustrated by two Scottish creators, Kirstin and Karen bring a truly authentic voice to this wonderful children’s story. 

SPT chair Councillor Stephen Dornan said:

“The Subway is delighted to be included in this fantastic book celebrating the very best of Scotland.  As a much loved Glasgow institution, the Subway has played a part in many families lives in this city for generations, this is a wonderful way to continue that tradition introducing the Subway to a whole new audience.”

Kirstin says: “I’m so excited to be launching this book in partnership with SPT. The Glasgow Subway is such an iconic part of Scottish history and it has been an honour to include it in our story."
