Brian and the Giant

Here we have another chapter in the life and adventures of our much loved hero Brian Boru. It has been a long, hot summer with little rain and the villagers are hungry. A rather overpowering smell reaches the noses of the villagers and they notice that their water has vanished. What can be the cause…

Brilliant

A Black Dog, depression, hangs over Dublin as recession bites – and only children can stop it. Uncle Ben has just lost his job and his house, and has moved in with Gloria and Raymonds’ parents. The children love Uncle Ben, and decide to help him to get rid of the Black Dog and recover…

Danger is Really Everywhere

Danger is everywhere or at least it would be if it weren’t for the world’s leading dangerologist, ‘Docter’ Noel Zone. With ‘Docter’ Noel to guide us we just might make it through life alive.

Rebecca is Always Right

For those of us who have enjoyed Rebecca Rafferty's adventures from the beginning this latest instalment is a real treat. Be warned: don't read this in public because from the first sentence this story is laugh out loud funny and only you'll make a show of yourself.  All our favourite characters are in top form – the megalomania…

The Brave Beast

Following the success of The Lonely Beast in 2011, it surely wasn’t going to be long before that hairy black monster reappeared. In his latest escapade, the Beast goes to an island to investigate 'a scary noise' which has been frightening the islanders. Like the first book, the story essentially takes the form of a journey. Young…

The Great Explorer

Chris Judge, author/illustrator of The Lonely Beast, is back with this second offering in his distinctive and instantly recognisable style. Tom has his fair share of mishaps and encounters, more than one Arctic beastie on his journey, before saving the day and reuniting with his proud father.  This is a fun, colourful book in which…

The Lonely Beast

It is tempting to read the debut children’s book by Irish illustrator Chris Judge as a response to the modern technological trappings of easy friendship; its Facebook-like opening map, the lack of impinging computer hardware would instantly resolve the book’s premise in two panels. Fortunately The Lonely Beast is instead a simple, playful visual narrative…

The Sleepwalkers

In contrast to Viviane Schwarz's other book published this year (Welcome to Your Awesome Robot, from Flying Eye Books), The Sleepwalkers is much of a linear comic book story. It is beautifully illustrated with line work done in pencil and coloured digitally which creates a very warm and dreamy effect. There are some spooky sequences which some younger…

The Snow Beast

Every year the villagers who live at the bottom of the Beast’s mountain celebrate the first day of snow by organising a special snow festival. But this year there’s a problem – their tools are missing. This latest book in Chris Judge’s Beast series tells how the Beast retrieves the tools and makes a new…
