Inis magazine: issue 55, January 2019

Inis is the magazine of Children's Books Ireland. Within these pages you will find features and articles on Irish and international children's 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.

"As January begins, we at Children’s Books Ireland are taking the opportunity to reflect on the changes we aim to make in the year ahead. The New Year inspires us to make improvements and resolutions, whether it be on a personal or professional basis. CBI is committed to making significant change in a number of areas which desperately need support, not just from us as an organisation, but fundamentally, at government level, for the benefit of all in society."
