you'll get a beating for speaking Welsh... A novel about the 'Welsh Not' or 'Welsh Stick' period in schools in Wales. Bob starts school at Ysgol y Llan at the end of the summer, but he's worried. He doesn't have a word of English. The 'Welsh Not' stigma for speaking Welsh is still used at that school.

Will he have to wear it? Will he be caned for speaking Welsh? He’s also been a sickly child and is starting school four years late: he’ll be an eight-year-old in the Infants’ class. He doesn’t know yet if he can cope with all this.
But his older brothers and big sister will look out for him, and his grandmother, Nain Bicycle, always makes him feel better. When an unexpected accident rocks the family, what part does Mac, the gamekeeper at the big house, play in the story?
