Cá Bhfuil Puifín Beag?

Written by Gerry Daly and Erika McGann, Translated by Muireann ní Chíobháin

Ach níl a tuismitheoirí in ann teacht uirthi ina bpoll.
Cá bhfuil sí?
Is maith an rud é go bhfuil ainmhithe agus éanlaithe na Sceilge réidh chun cabhrú.

A fantastic new Irish translation of Where Are You, Puffling?

A puffling has gone in search of adventure – now her puffin parents can’t find her anywhere!

They talk to the seal and the gannet and the rabbit; they walk to the huts and the cliffs and the cove. They hear lots of stories of the puffling helping others, but they just cannot find their fluffy, black chick.

Finally, they spot her – on a boat out at sea!

The puffling is too small to fly home, so the animals of Skellig work together and come up with something very clever …

Muireann ní Chíobháin

Muireann is a children's author and performer. Although a Cork City native, she spent much of her childhood in the Corca Dhuibhne Gaeltacht in Kerry where her father's family are from and is a proud Irish speaker. When she’s not writing books, dancing about on your TV screen or cooking up new shows or ideas, you'll find her in the sea, doodling in her sketchbook or most likely running around after her young and very energetic sons on the beaches of Tramore, Co. Waterford.

She hopes that this book will be the perfect excuse to fulfil a lifelong dream of getting a puppy and calling him Murphy!
