From prolific Irish artist, Mary Murphy, comes a stunning Irish language picture book that will evoke lots of giggles, gurgles and smiles - not to mention kisses - from little babies! Prestigious poet and translator, Gabriel Rosenstock, captures in Irish all the fun, fizz and warmth of Mary Murphy's picture book words in this young, interactive title all about ... kissing! Did you know that a giraffe kiss is gentle and tall ... like this! *Mwaaaah!* Then there are kisses that are quick and small ... others are fizzy and bubbly ... some are even long and tooty-tooty! There are SO many different types of kisses, just turn the page to see!

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.

While the poor duck works and works, through rain and hail, the farmer lazes about ... barking out commands from his bed. But, one day, the other animals decide to take action! It's time to stand up to that lazy farmer! This story of heroism and comradeship, with illustrations that are as stunningly beautiful and powerful as they are truly funny, make this new Irish edition a book to be read again and again ... and again!
A stunning, bold and funny picture book from Michael Rosen and rising star illustrator Kevin Waldron, in the Irish language for very first time!

The teasing insect easily misses the rhino's roll, squash, roll and the tiger's swat, swoop, snatch too but ... these very BIG animals are getting VERY annoyed! How will Tiny Little Fly's adventure end? Will he get away and fly fly fly? From Michael Rosen and Kevin Waldron, translated by Gabriel Rosenstock, comes this wonderful read-aloud story for the very young that chalks one up for the little guy.
