Paidi Peinteir by Dairine ni Dhonnchu

Ta portraid iontach a pheinteail ag Paidi Peinteir. Ach ce ata sa phortraid? Duine an-ait ar fad! Paddy Painter is painting a beautiful portrait. But who is it in the picture? Someone very strange indeed! A simple story for beginner readers in Irish.


'Absolutely fantastic Irish language stories. Illustrations are super nasty and with very basic linguistic structures they really are great fun.'

'Original and very funny books ... The wacky, colourful illustrations by Bronagh O'Hanlon tune in perfectly with the tone of the text'

'Two very appealing books written in simple Irish (which) combine comic storylines with lively illustrations'
