You can look for Larry in the following locations: The Cliffs of MoherGalway BayCroagh PatrickThe Giant's CausewayNewgrangeCroke ParkSt Patrick's Day Parade in DublinCollege GreenGlendaloughThe Rock of CashelPuck Fair, KillorglinBunratty Castle Great fun for all the family.


'Lots of fun, this occupies my daughter for ages as she searches out Larry and his friends'

.co.uk 'the concept is fairly simple ... it's Where's Wally in Irish ... but the execution is far from that and it works an absolute treat

'entertaining and educational'

'will keep children and adults alike busy for hours'

'a wonderfully colourful book for all ages'

'the beauty of Where's Larry is not just the massively entertaining hunt for the little leprechaun but also the wonderful colour and care that has clearly gone into every character'

'enough to keep even the busiest of minds engaged'

'well worth a look ... especially to take on your own summer holiday'

'hours upon hours of fun to be had'

'certainly a book to interest young tourists, whether from abroad or on a `staycation''

'Connell, Evening Echo 'far more than just a `spot the character'
