Alasdair the Red, of Troon, an epic poem

Alasdair The RedBy Eileen Scott and Michael Scott

This poem for children up to the age of seventy-five tells how a brave and resourceful Scottish cat defeated a sea monster of gigantic proportions but a weak mind and fragile spirit. This Mingy, with more than one head and an unusual assortment of other features, mistakenly and pointlessly kidnapped a beautiful Persian queen and chained her to a towering outcrop over the sea. The rest is cat-history, including the fact the great Alasdair prevailed, spared the life of Mingy, and gave the beautiful female in distress her freedom. It is an example to us all.
