Molly and the Lockdown Synopsis

Molly and her friends are suddenly plunged into a lockdown and have to adapt to a new way of living.

Molly completes jigsaws, plays her fiddle, and looks after her pets, whilst her mother helps others on the island and her father is stuck far away on the mainland. With a vaccine on the horizon, this story ends with a message of hope.

In collaboration with Irish publisher An tSnáthaid Mhór, the story will be released simultaneously in three languages: English, Irish and Welsh.

A great resource for people home-schooling, it helps educate children about the challenging circumstances surrounding COVID-19, UK-wide lockdowns and the vaccine, as well as providing a hopeful message for both children and adults.
