Big Man Poems and Stories in Inverclyde Libraries!

  • Children aged 8-12 years old came to the libraries to write stories and poems, inspired by the Big Man’s visit. They talked about the mythology surrounding the Big Man, and tried to imagine his history, his reasons for returning, and his perceptions of Inverclyde. The results are the wonderful poems and stories below.
