Inis magazine: issue 63, July 2021

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.

"There's a lot of conversation happening about diversity, inclusion, equity, belonging and human rights. And this is a good thing. But, of course, it is easier to talk than to try something and to make real change that will make a difference in people's lives. In this issue we are honouring change-makers whose voices we want to amplify and whose work we want to celebrate."
