What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Once Upon a Place features six new poems by Irish poets alongside 11 new short stories from many of Ireland’s leading children’s writers including Roddy Doyle, Derek Landy and former Laureate na nÓg (a position awarded in Ireland to children’s book creators) Siobhán Parkinson, as well as the first ever story for children by Academy Award nominee Jim Sheridan, director of My Left Foot and In America. It also features new work by Eoin Colfer himself, along with Pat Boran, Seamus Cashman, John Connolly, Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick, Mark Granier, Paula Leyden, Oisín McGann, Geraldine Mills, Jane Mitchell, Kate Newmann, Sarah Webb and Enda Wyley. Each of the stories and poems is based around the theme of place, being set in or inspired by a particular location within Ireland. Lavish black-and-white charcoal illustrations make this unique anthology a very beautiful object.
