Sam McBratney

Sam McBratney sums up his post-war childhood as short trousers, Fair Isle jumper, the 11 plus and grammar school. He taught at a secondary school himself for a while and was a primary school teacher.

Sam wrote many books for children and young adults, published internationally, and is probably best-known for Guess How Much I Love You. In 1993 he won a BISTO Award for Put a Saddle on the Pig, published by Methuen, and also received the Bass Ireland Arts Prize. He died in 2020.

'One of the best and most perceptive writers for young people'

The Guardian The Guardian

'This is a delightful story written in big print, and suitable for young readers. It is simply a joy to sit down and read. There is lightness of spirit and a sense of fun that is just what the young reader needs.'

Books Ireland Books Ireland

'... the story of Lowry Lynch and his long hair told in a wacky new style and quirkily illustrated by Donald Teskey, this also is ideal to get fledgling readers up and running.'
