Inis magazine: issue 46, January 2016

Inis is the magazine of Children's Books Ireland. Within these pages you will find features and articles on Irish and international childrens books as well as in-depth reviews of new titles for children and teenagers. With its range of expert contributors, this is a key resource for teachers, writers, illustrators, librarians, parents/guardians and everyone interested in children's books.

"Bringing together this issue, what immediately became noticeable was the respect the contributors felt towards, and absolute necessity of, librarians and their libraries, and more importantly the relationship between author, illustrator, reader and publisher with them."
