We loved, loved, loved Peely Wally. In fact, my 3 yr old has been calling himself Peely Wally for the last week!

I absolutely adore the colours in this book - so cheerful. I suggested my new newphew be called Peely Wally but the family said no. Shame.


When I saw the title of your post, my initial reaction was that you must still be feeling off colour - my Scottish roots!, then I saw the illustration of the lovely book. I'm intrigued now to take a look to find out what it's about. You're never too old for picture books. And I hope you are feeling better today... I'm a gleek so I've just been catching up on the last two episodes to cheer me up during an ironing session!


Do you understand Avril's comment? It wasn't until I lived in Scotland that I'd ever come across the expression "peely wally" (pronounced as to rhyme with Sally, not golly). If someone says you look peely wally, it means you look pale, under the weather, a bit ill.

Rosie Scribble

Ah! I didn't know about the Scottish expression "peely wally". It means looking pale and under the weather? Ha! That's highly appropriate at the moment!!


Also... Pilau Wallah from Hindi (yellow person), term for sickly British people

Laid-back Mum

Rosie Scribble

Thanks Sue xx. It is a lovely book. I'm giving this copy to my niece for her third birthday next week. I'm not telling her I didn't pay for it. Obviously. ;)

Rosie Scribble

Thanks Emma! I'd recommend it x
