Description

Iain’s grandfather was a fearless Scottish war hero, whose painting hangs on the wall of Edinburgh Castle. Iain was a shy teen growing up in Gloucestershire with two goats, 27 dogs and awkward hair. This funny and heartwarming story reveals how Iain struggled to live up to his prestigious family history and faced his very own enemy on the beach. 'Very funny... a charming and engaging storyteller. Highly recommended.' (Blythe Crawford).

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 28 days ago

Iain FM Smith‘s title is presumably tongue-in-cheek. Not because this hour’s bad – it definitely isn’t – but because it’s an allusion to his war hero grandfather, who escaped near certain execution in the Far East, performed a self-amputation, was offered sundry military decorations (but wouldn’t accept them), and whose...
