Watch out for old Nip Nebs.

Youngsters are being encouraged to look out for a creature with "cold, cold breath and a wee bag full of skinkles" in Dumfries tomorrow.

Storyteller Susi Briggs will be sharing the magic of her book character Nip Nebs - the ancient Scottish sprite also known as Jack Frost - as part of the Wee Fringe festival with a trail through the town centre.

The free event starts at 11am and it will also be held next Saturday, January 27, but starting at noon.

The programme lasts an hour and starts from the hub at the former Baker's Oven before heading to Waterstones where pixies will be hiding.

Each pixie has a Scots word which will feature on the trail, led by Susi.

The book's illustrator, Ruthie Redden, will be on hand to talk about how she created the enchanting images.

Nip Nebs himself will make an appearance to act out parts of the story and the event will end at the Globe Inn where the sprite will give a short history of the life of Robert Burns.
