Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The latest completely charming installment in the bestselling 44 Scotland Street series.

There is never a quiet moment on 44 Scotland Street. In The World According to Bertie, Pat deals with the reappearance of Bruce, which has her heart skipping—and not in a pleasant way. Angus Lordie's dog Cyril has been taken away by the authorities, accused of being a serial biter. Unexpectedly, Domenica has offered to help free him. As usual, Big Lou is still looking for love, and handing out coffee and advice to the always contemplative Matthew. And Bertie, the beleaguered Italian-speaking six year old prodigy, now has a little brother, Ulysses, who Bertie hopes will help distract his pushy mother Irene.

Beautifully observed, cleverly detailed, The World According to Bertie is classic McCall Smith and a treat for his avid fans as well as his first time readers.

Synopsis:

The changing lives and relationships of the colorful and eccentric denizens of Edinburgh's 44 Scotland Street--including Pat, Domenica, Angus Lordie, Big Lou, and Mathew--are seen through the eyes of six-year-old Bertie, the Italian-speaking prodigy and saxophonist, who is hoping that his new baby brother, Ulysses, will distract his mother Irene. Original. 125,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

Six-year-old Bertie and artist Angus Lordie join forces to rescue Lordie's beloved dog Cyril from the pound in this fourth charming installment in the bestselling 44 Scotland Street series.
