Kim Harte, Dubray Children’s Book Buyer and Siobhan Parkinson, author and Laureate na nÓg, were on Today with Pat Kenny this morning to talk about their favourite Christmas books for children.
Picture books got a great mention, Kim featured three Walker Books authors who are all Irish! Myself, Chris Haughton and Kevin Waldron.
I was really delighted get a mention, Kim described On The Road with Mavis and Marge as "Hilarious; it's the Thelma and Louise story with a cow and a chicken!"
So if you are looking for the perfect Christmas present go have a look at all the books Kim and Siobhan recommended at www.kim-harte.com. There's books for all ages, so no excuses! The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness is amazing, a must have for teenagers. Go have a listen back here, fast forward to 1.37.
Go forth and buy BOOKS! Books for Christmas!
Books, Books, BOOKS!
