To keep up my Spanish I like to read the Spanish version of Harry Potter because I know those books so well. Does anyone know of any Gaelic equivalents? Harry Potter has not been published in Scottish Gaelic, but are other popular English books ever translated into Gaelic--particularly books for young people?

Tapadh leibh! :)

You mean something like "Eachdraidh Ealasaid ann an Tìr nan Iongantas" (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in Scottish Gaelic) ? I think Tin-Tin has been done, too. I'm currently working my way through "Asterix Ann an Duthaich Nan Cruithneach"

I'm also holding out for a copy of Sgeulachdan Grimm - hoping it might be republished.

Tapadh leibh, a Shìle! 'S toil le mo phiuthar Tin-Tin.

I've never read Alice in Wonderland, but I think it would be cool to get a copy in English and in Gaelic and read them together. That Tin-Tin looks great! Thanks for the links. :) It would be great if the Grimm fairy tales were republished!

If you use ibooks there are a selection of Gàidhlig books. Many of them are also written in English. I search using " Gàidhlig ".

Fhuair mise a-mach mu dheidhinn Tintin nuair a bha mi ag ionnsachadh Fraingis. B' e Beilgeach a bh'ann an ùghdar. Tha mi air leughadh "An t-Eilean Dubh" anns a' Bheurla, ach bu toigh leam gu math ga leughadh anns a' Ghàidhlig cuideachd!

I found out about Tintin when I was studying French. The author was Belgian. I have read "The Black Island" in English, but I would really like to read it in Gaelic, too!

While watching a document on Cli, I learned that two of Roald Dahl's books have been translated into Gaidhlig:

Dànaidh, Laoch an t-Saoghail - Roald Dahl (Danny, Champion of the World); and
A Chorrag Chrosta (The Magic Finger) for which I could find no online seller. :(

The Gaelic4Parents Facebook page published a post indicating Storlann has published Jacqueline Wilson's "Glubbslyme" in Gàidhlig.
