The twelve novels MacDonald set in his homeland make frequent use of Scots dialogue, which has posed a problem for many would-be readers. This new edition of DONAL GRANT, the sequel to SIR GIBBIE, and book four in the translation series, provides the complete original text, but places English side-by-side with the Scots. Also featured is an introduction by renowned MacDonald authority and best-selling author Michael Phillips, along with more of the distinguished artwork of SIR GIBBIE’s illustrator Carrie Stout.
In his preface, translator David Jack praises DONAL GRANT as “a story-sermon par excellence” in which MacDonald blends his powerful mythmaking with his no less powerful preaching: the result being “a kind of fairy-tale for grown-ups.” Donal himself he compares to the author, claiming that both bring us (as Donal brings the proud but unhappy heiress Lady Arctura) “news from a far country, for the lack of which she had been slowly perishing.”
Unique features of this edition of Donal Grant:
***English translations of all Scots dialogue side-by-side with the original text
***Ten original illustrations by artist Carrie Stout
***Introduction by best-selling author Michael Phillips
In the third instalment in the charming Honeycake Book Series, Nala brings her outgrown toys and clothes to Rainbow Hall, and spends the day with her Grandma and Uncle JD discovering a special magical power we all have, called ✨KINDNESS✨
“Kindness is a “Special Magical Power” we all have inside of us. When we show kindness, it’s like spreading sunshine everywhere we go — no matter what the weather is like outside.
Could you imagine how much nicer the world would be if everyone smiled at each other or did a random act of kindness every day? We are kind when we use our manners by saying please and thank you, or by opening a door, or by giving our seat on a bus or train to a stranger in need.
Kindness is a gift we can all afford to give. Though it doesn’t cost a thing, your kindness can mean everything to another person.”
Use your “Special Magical Powers” and spread kindness everywhere you go!

I have heard the saying that it takes a village to raise a child. That is true for all the parents and teachers, coaches, friends, families and anyone who have the pleasure and responsibilities of inspiring our children. This book came as an inspiration and reflection of the important attributes that helps to shape our children. It is about all of our SHEROES and HEROES. Studies have shown that the happiest, most successful children are those who can appreciate the differences and the opportunities and learnings that is experienced everyday. I have taught my two daughters that it is important to start from a place of gratitude. My hope is that this book will be a discussion for parents and teachers and anyone who wants to inspire important life attributes in a child’s life. There is an opportunity to choose one the attributes each month and celebrate it, discuss, reflect and have a conversation without any judgement to build understanding and awareness.
