A poetry book to read with children and for children. Ideal for teachers who can read some of the poems in school to talk about Irish traditions, friendship and feelings. The beautiful illustrations make this book very special. A perfect gift for young readers and poetry lovers.
Scéal deas séimh a léiríonn gur féidir le daoine éagsúla rudaí a dhéanamh ar bhealaí éagsúla agus nach bhfágann sin go bhfuil duine amháin ceart is an duine eile mícheart. Níos deise fós toisc go dtagann as traidisiún an Lucht Siúil. Thaitin sé go mór linn.
Leabhar fíor-fíor álainn do pháistí - thaitin na 4 scéal bheaga ann go mór le mo chailín beag féin (4 bliana d'aois), go háirithe an ceann faoin "mbotún bindealáin" nuair a thiteann Fionnuala bhocht den luascán agus tosaíonn a glúin ag cur fola. Deas do thuismitheoir iad a léamh freisin mar níl siad fada agus tá cineál imeartas focal deas iontu. Mholfainn go mór é.
Black & Irish: Legends, Trailblazers & Everyday Heroes
This is a wonderful story, which gives centre stage to the rich world of Traveller culture. The illustrations are magical and my 5 year old granddaughter loved it. Every school and library in Ireland should have this book. Well done Lucy.
Loved this book from start to finish. Jane Mitchell gives a deep insight into the life of an asylum seeker in Ireland after a desperate, heart wrenching flee to safety from her home country

Beautifully illustrated and fabulously written tale. Bought two! A must have.
The text by Oein, the illustrations by Olya in this book were excellent. I have already purchased 4 copies of this book, one for myself, and 3 copies for friends. This is the second book written by Oein that I have read. Why the Moon Travels was also a very enjoyable read. I want to wish Oein, Olya, Skein Press and Little Island great success with this book. I very highly recommend The Slug and the Snail. Go raibh maith agaibh.
Another great book from Oein. While it is laid out as a children’s book, it’s an important tale to remind adults too. I wish Oein and Little
The new Meg Grehan's book is like a warm queer hug which tells you "it'll be allright, you can be proud". Absolutly lovely and well-writing, with such a good magic idea, not too much just enough. Thanks for this new book! Tom from France
Beautiful book, my 6 year old son loves it.
