BIO: Judi Curtin has been described as Ireland’s answer to Jacqueline Wilson and her warm, engaging books about family and friendship are hugely popular.

Patricia Forde is an award winning children’s writer from Galway. Her highly original books include The Wordsmith and Frogs Do Not Like Dragons.

Oisin McGann is one of Ireland’s most talented writers and he is also an illustrator. His Mad Grandad series is much loved by children and adults alike.

Natahsa Mac a’Bhaird has written many popular books for children including the Star Club series and the My Ireland Activity Books which combine facts with puzzles and colouring fun.

Alan Nolan wears many hats – designer, illustrator, cartoonist and writer. His books, which he illustrates himself mix humour with inventive design.

Nicola Pierce’s Spirit of the Titanic was her debut novel for children and has become a huge hit with many reprints. A gripping book set on the Titanic, it’s not to be missed.

E R Murray lives in the wilds of West Cork where her brilliant imagination dreams up highly original books for children. The Book of Learning was the 2016 UNESCO Citywide Read for Children.
