Synopsis

Ar an mBothar le Mavis Agus Marge (on the Road with Mavis and Marge) by Niamh Sharkey

A beautiful new Irish language edition of an award-winning picture book from the Laureate na nOg. Mavis and Marge are different from other animals. They want to go a-wandering. So off they go - over the hills, across the sea, and up to the moon they go, gathering a band of free-range friends on the way. But, suddenly, from across the milky way, home has a distant allure...Translated into Irish by Gabriel Rosenstock, this is a wonderful adventure story for first-time Irish readers.
