Inis magazine: issue 66, July 2022

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.

‘This is something of a running theme in this issue, and for Children’s Books Ireland itself: our vision, every child a reader, really means every child.’
