Sir Gibbie is an 1879 novel by the Scottish author George MacDonald, written in the Doric dialect of Scotland, that presents a narrative rags-to-riches arc for the title character, in the context of the actual emphasis on the integrity of Gibbie as an obedient Christian servant, and indeed as a Christ-like figure, despite his challenges and circumstances. Gibbie is a destitute, mute boy in Scotland, raised by an abusive and alcoholic father. At one point in childhood, he finds himself in murderous company - the "wee Sir Gibbie" is an appellation of affection given the character, by his compatriots, emphasizing the distinctiveness of his character, in particular in relation to his coarse surroundings. He ultimately flees from this, experiencing adventure and misadventure, including tragic punishment meted out for doing good to others
