'We boys scuttled down.... Having had our tea, it was not really hunger that drove us on such foraging expeditions, but the sight of a large bowl of Mum’s trifle....'

We Waved to the Baker is an evocative and heart-warming collection of stories from Andrew Arbuckle’s youth in Fife. Through the fresh gaze of childhood, he depicts the rugged hard work of life on the farm, while capturing beautifully the essence of growing up in a boisterous family and a close rural community.

We follow the young Andrew as he deals with the trials and tribulations of school, older brothers and plucking chickens, while throwing into the mix as much mischievous play as possible.

‘Intense memories of a rural childhood lovingly remembered,’ Fordyce Maxwell ‘Perceptive, heartfelt, a treat to read and savour,’ Bill Howatson
