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

Written by Niamh Sharkey

Part of the Walker Eireann Series

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

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.
