Reviews

a lovely Irish tale … This picture book is beautifully illustrated; you could spend days admiring it. It’s a story that is close to home, based on the well-known islands off the Kerry coast. It has a fun interactive element for the young readers, where they can spot and point out where puffling is hiding on each page. This sweet book is available in English and as Gaeilge

just might help keep your young children (or grandchildren) happy

We think this book is for children age 4 to 6. But the illustrations are really nice so maybe a 7 or 8 year old would enjoy looking at this book and reading it for their younger brother or sister. We give this book 10 out of 10 - By Cathal (6, Junior Infants) & Odhran (8, Second Class), St. Joseph’s NS, Tullamore

The story carries a powerful message that children will be able to connect with … The overall message of this story promotes acts of kindness.

a stunning book
*Irish Country Magazine*

Gerry Daly’s magnificent illustrations combined with Erika McGann’s engaging text as well as a detailed list of the island creatures is a pure treat for young readers
*Rtejr's Book Club*

From the moment I set eyes upon this beautiful book, its bright, beautiful, colourful and exciting cover enticed me to quickly jump into and explore its tale. My favourite part was following Puffling’s brave yet fun trek around Skellig. Although this book may be aimed at younger readers, I am ten years old and I loved it. I would recommend this book to anyone who is young at heart, has a love of wildlife and enjoys stories that include good morals. “Every day is a good day to have an adventure”

Charmingly illustrated by Gerry Daly (whose uncle had the original idea for the book) ... a lovely story about friendship and helping each other
*Parents in Touch*

delightful
*Mallow Star and Vale Star*

The drawings are remarkable… The expressions on the animals are great… The perspective, and the landscapes, there is a skill and a talent in that… It is a beautifully illustrated book
*East Coast FM’s Morning Show with Declan Meehan*

wonderful …sure to delight younger readers … there’s great fun to be had on finding where the Puffling has hidden on each page and the phrase ‘Where Are You Puffling?’ just begs to be shouted out when reading it at bedtime. This will be one kids return to again and again for the sheer enjoyment of the adventure
*Clare People*

a charming picture book
