Synopsis

Mad Grandad and the Flying Saucer by Oisin McGann, Oisin McGann

Lenny and Mad Grandad buy a flying saucer and shoot into space together. Space is full of all sorts of creatures: some are friendly, some are not so friendly ... Getting into space is easy. Getting home again -- alive -- is going to be a lot harder!

About the Author

Born in Dublin in 1973, Oisin McGann spent his childhood there and in Drogheda, County Louth. He studied art at Ballyfermot Senior College and Dun Laoghaire School of Art and Design, and went on to work in illustration, design and film animation. He moved to London in 1998, where he eventually found work as an art director and copy writer for an advertising agency. After three and a half years of advertising, he began to fear for his immortal soul. He returned to Ireland in the summer of 2002 much as he had left ... with no job, no home and some meagre savings. He now lives in Meath and works as an author, freelance illustrator and artist. You can check out Oisin's own website at oisinmcgann.com.
