Rob Roy And All That by Scoular Anderson

Scoular Anderson is one of Scotland's best-known children's authors and illustrators, whose work has been published widely by many UK publishers. He was born in Sunderland, and raised Dunoon in Argyll, Scotland. After leaving boarding school, he studied graphic design at the Glasgow School of Art before moving to London to work as an illustrator for London University. During this time, he also worked as an illustrator and writer for various children's publishers.

He returned to Scotland in 1976 and began teaching art at Cumbernauld High School in Glasgow, before moving back to Dunoon in 1986 to work as a freelance writer and illustrator. The first book he illustrated was 'My First Joke Book' (Corgi, 1986). As well as illustrating other authors' works, he has written over seventy books himself, including 'Space Pirates' series (Frances Lincoln, since 2004).

Anderson is also known for writing illustrating humorous educational books for Birlinn Ltd, such as '1314 And All That' (2000) and '1745 And All That' (2001), about the history of Scotland. He has also illustrated the other books by Allan Burnett in the 'And All That' series as well as 'Scottish Inventors' (2011) and 'Scottish Criminals' (2011) by Gary Smailes. He additionally provided the illustrations for 'Truly Terrible Tales' in 1997, a four-volume children's book series that tells the true stories of the lives of explorers, scientists and writers. It was a spin-off of Terry Deary's popular 'Horrible Histories' series (to which house cartoonist Martin Brown is most commonly attached.).
