Marco Moves In

Written by Gerry Boland, Illustrated by Áine McGuinness

A grizzly bear walked all the way from the zoo to my front door and not a single person noticed him. I suppose it helped that it was night, and that he was wearing a big black duffle coat.

Patrick makes his unexpected guest at home, while keeping him hidden from the neighbours, police and his very distractable mum!

Marco: Master of Disguise

Written by Gerry Boland, Illustrated by Áine McGuinness

Most of my class class had a pet of some sort. But no one I knew had a grizzly bear sleeping in their garden shed. Marco wasn't a pet, of course. He was my friend. My best friend.

Can Patrick stop Marco being sent back to the zoo? An absurd and hilarious tale of real friendship.

Marco: Moonwalker

Written by Gerry Boland, Illustrated by Áine McGuinness

In their latest escapade, Marco Moonwalker, Patrick discovers that Marco can play the trombone, banjo and even dance like Michael Jackson! But disaster strikes when he is spotted without his mask: how will Patrick and Mum get him out of the Zoo again?
