Written colloquially in Scottish about a West Highland Terrier and his friends and antics.Cecil Aldin was born in Slough, Berkshire, in 1870. His father was a builder, notably of houses in Kensington, where Cecil attended National Art Training School. He afterwards worked under the well-known illustrators John Leech and Randolph Caldecott. He was perhaps the most versatile of a talented group of early nineteenth-century sporting artists that included Alfred Munnings and Snaffles- he was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1898. His illustrations for magazines and books, some of which he wrote himself, are full of charm and humour. A Dog Day, and Mac, are book that have made Aldin a household name on both sides of the Atlantic. He died in 1936.
