The Adventures of Heidi and Morag

Note – these are all best viewed using Adobe Acrobat’s “two page view.

This is a growing set of little books written and illustrated for Heidi and Morag McCrae by their silly grandfather (i.e. me!). I’m working with Heidi’s dad, Ali McCrae (a fine graphic artist and printer who works for Colorprinz, Penicuik) to print them up for fun.  in the meantime, these are draft versions for anyone who wants to enjoy them.
