An Dochtuir Dan by Dairine ni Dhonnchu

'Ca bhfuil an phian?' arsa Dochtuir Dan. 'I do shron? I do bholg?'...Ach, feach! Ta an phian imithe! 'Where is the pain?' says Doctor Dan. 'In your nose? In your stomach?'...But, wait! Now the pain is gone! 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'
