Kate loves going to Highland dance class each week and is thrilled when her teacher suggests she compete at the Highland Games for the first time. Kate agrees to practice, but quickly changes her mind when she realises it’s not as much fun to dance at home alone as it is with friends in class. And, besides, she figures her dancing is already good enough. Everything will be fine. Or will it?

A single misstep sets off a hilarious chain of events across the whole games field in this over-the-top tale…

This high-energy picture book by author and Highland dance teacher Riel Nason showcases Highland dancing and the Highland Games culture and is brought to life by the whimsical illustrations of Nathasha Pilotte.
