Gold

We all know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but it’s hard not to with one as striking as that designed by Lauren O’Neill – winner of the 2016 Children’s Books Ireland Award for Illustration – for Gold. Two boys in billowing jumpsuits hang from a home-made glider, surrounded by birds and gazing down…

Time After Time

This new Judi Curtin novel will delight her fans and gather new followers. Time After Time takes Curtin’s familiar theme of friendship, as it focuses on two girls growing up and dealing with the changes life brings. To this Curtin adds a layer of mystery by employing one of my favourite plot devices: the time-slip…
