Ar an mBothar le Mavis agus Marge (On the Road with Mavis and Marge)

Author: Niamh Sharkey Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/09/2013

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.

An amazing Irish-language translation of this deliciously illustrated read-aloud. Little children will be hungry, hungry, hungry for more! The ravenous beast is hungry; in fact, he's ravenous! But is he the hungriest animal of all? Nonsense smonsense, scoff the other animals, and Hokum Pokum! But they want to watch out or the ravenous beast might just gobble 'em up and swallow 'em down! Niamh Sharkey's unmistakable style and stylish palette create a beautiful book that's almost good enough to eat!
