BOOK DESCRIPTION: 
Pangur is a black cat living happily with his family in Bern, a beautiful city in Switzerland – until the day they decide to return to Scotland! Now he is a foreign cat in Stornoway in the Isle of Lewis, and the other cats are not being kind to him. Pangur decides to leave the island and return to Bern. Surely his family will return too when the autumn storms start…won’t they? Follow Pangur’s adventures across the country, escaping from one danger after the next, until he learns the importance of friends and family.

’S e cat dubh a th’ ann am Pangur agus tha e a’ fuireach gu dòigheil leis a theaghlach ann am Bern, baile brèagha san Eilbhis – gus an latha a tha iad a’ cur romhpa tilleadh a dh’Alba! A-nis tha e na chat coigreach ann an Steòrnabhagh, Eilean Leòdhais, agus chan eil na cait eile coibhneil ris idir. Tha Pangur a’ cur roimhe gum fàg e an eilean agus gun till e gu Bern. Agus tillidh a theaghlach cuideachd nuair a thig na stoirmean as t-fhoghar … nach till? Leanaibh na cuairtean-dànach Phanguir thar na dùthcha, a’ teicheadh bho chunnart an dèidh cunnart, gus an ionnsaich e cho cudromach ’s a tha càirdean agus teaghlach. #scottishgaelicchildrensbooks #gàidhlig #gaelic

Tha Clò a' Bhradain fo bhròn a chluinntinn gun do chaochail Mìcheal MacNìll (Mìcheal Eòin Chaluim Sheumais Mhóir). Mar a sgrìobh Oifis Iomairtean na Gàidhlig, "Le a choibhneas is ’na dhòigh aotrom a bh’aige ’s ann aig cruinneachaidhean nan Gàidheal a bhiodh Migi. Is e a bhiodh daonnan deiseil is deònach òran a ghabhail air neo naidheachd innseadh. Le bhi ag oideachadh iomadh Gàidheal eile ’s a’ choimhearsnachd againn, chuidich e ann an dòighean beaga is móra gus a’ Ghàidhlig is a cultur a ghléidheadh ann an Albainn Nuaidh thro a làthaireachd chaoimh is bheartais do dhualchas."

Ann an 2021 bha cothrom againn a dh'obair còmhla ri Migi agus an Dr. Seumas Y. Dòmhnallach air sgeulachd a dh'ionnsaich Migi bho a mhàthair, an sgeulachd as fheàrr leis: Luran agus a' Mhaighdeann-mhara. Rinn sinn leabhar às a sgeulachd seo còmhla ri chèile, le dealbhan grinn le Eamag Dhòmhnallach. Bithidh sinn taingeil gu Migi gu bràth airson an sgeulachd aige a cho-roinneadh leinn. 'S e oighreachd prìseil a th'ann a thug e dhuinn uile. Clach air a chàrn.

Bradan Press is sad to hear that Mickey MacNeil (Mìcheal Eòin Chaluim Sheumais Mhóir) has passed away. As the NS Office of Gaelic Affairs wrote, "With his kindness and light heartedness, Mickey would be a fixture at Gaelic community gatherings. And he would always be ready and willing to share a song or a story. By way of mentoring many other Gaels in our community, he assisted in big and small ways in preserving Gaelic language and cultural expression in Nova Scotia through his gentle presence and treasure of cultural heritage."

In 2021 we had the opportunity to work with Mickey and Dr. Shamus Y. MacDonald on a story that Mickey learned from his mother, his favourite story: Luran and the Mermaid. We made a book out of his story together, with illustrations by Emily MacDonald. We'll forever be grateful to Mickey for sharing his story with us. It's a precious inheritance that he gave to us all. We'll always remember him.
✨Spring 2024 Title Spotlight✨

One of our forthcoming Spring 2024 titles is Na Trì Mucan Beaga | The Three Pigs! Once there were three little pigs who left their mama to build new houses of their own. The first little pig built a house with straw, and the second little pig built a house with gorse twigs, but the Big Bad Wolf blew them down and ate up the little pigs! The third little pig built a house with bricks, and the Big Bad Wolf couldn’t blow it down. So he started playing tricks on the third little pig in order to catch him and eat him—but the pig was just as cunning as the wolf! Who will emerge victorious, and who will be eaten? A third fairytale translation with charming vintage illustrations, from the creator of Na Trì Mathain and A’ Chearc Bheag Ruadh.

Margaret MacKay is a retired teacher living in rural Pictou County whose many creative interests include fibre arts, painting, gardening and photography.

✨New Book Feature✨

Lisette of Louisbourg is a middle-grade novel by the Nova Scotian author of Iain of New Scotland is set in 1749 during the time when the British are handing the Fortress of Louisbourg back to the French.

When the convent where she has been living burns down, twelve-year-old orphan Lisette barely escapes with her life. The nuns think she died in the fire, and Lisette sees a chance to escape the drudgery of lacemaking under a cruel, greedy Mère Supérieure. She sets out alone to find the uncle who left her at the convent when she was six, yet things don’t go quite as she planned. When an opportunity arises to escape her troubles in France and start a new life at the Fortress of Louisbourg, clever and resourceful Lisette jumps at the chance. But is someone following her?

As we get closer to summer, we start to think of warmer weather, sunshine, and of course the story of Luran agus a'mhaighdeann-mhara | Luran and the Mermaid!

This is the story of Luran, a farmer and fisherman who had cattle, sheep, and horses, and a good boat too. But one thing was bothering Luran: the fairies kept coming every night and stealing his animals. He didn’t know what to do. But one day when he was out fishing, a mermaid came to his boat! This tale is a favourite of Cape Breton Gaelic tradition bearer Mickey MacNeil. His ancestors brought this folktale from the Isle of Barra, Scotland, to Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, 200 years ago.

You can learn more about this book and others on our website, bradanpress.com!

Beannachdan na Féille Brìghde oirbh uile! // Happy Saint Brigid's Day to you all! 

St Brigid (c 451-525) is one of three national saints of Ireland, alongside St Patrick and St Columba. She is believed to have been born in Foughart near Dundalk in County Louth and according to folklore she was an abbess who founded several convents, including one in Kildare which was built on the site of a pagan shrine to the Celtic goddess of the same name. 

St Brigid is also credited with establishing a school of art, which included the teaching of metalwork and illumination. She is the patron saint of many things including poetry, learning, healing, and protection. 

The saint is remembered on her feast day by the tradition of making St Brigid’s crosses from rushes. The cross usually has four arms, each tied at the ends, and a woven square in the middle. These are place over doorways and windows to protect the home from any kind of harm.

Owre gauze and lace;
Tho’, faith! I fear ye dine but sparely
On sic a place …
