Every day this week we’ll be publishing a video for each of the shortlisted titles in this year’s English language Tir na n-Og Award.
Book Haul #2
Featuring newly-released and forthcoming books from Firefly, Y Lolfa, Macmillan, OUP, Nosy Crow, Barrington Stoke and Harper Collins
The Blue Balloon:30 Years Blog Tour
30 Years after it was first published, The Blue Balloon is reissued in a special anniversary edition with bonus material. The book marked the first of many appearances by Kipper, the loveable, friendly puppy.
The Blue Balloon is a celebration of imagination, creativity and playfulness and for this blog tour, we were challenged to come up with something different to mark the occasion. The worms got to work and the result is this video on our new YouTube Channel. Please enjoy, like and subscribe. Thank you.
Thanks to Hodder and Hachette for the invite to take part in the Blog Tour – we had great fun!

Storm Hound Book Trailer
To mark the release of Storm Hound by Claire Fayers (published by Macmillan Children’s on 21 Feb 2019), we have made our first book trailer. Hope you enjoy!
Mirror Magic Blog Tour
We were delighted to be given the opportunity to travel to Cardiff to meet with Claire Fayers and talk with her about her enchanting new novel, Mirror Magic. Noah takes the lead in this video, with the rest of the worms joining in with a ‘Would You Rather?’ section near the end. Thank you very very much to Claire for being such a great sport and taking the time to film with us.
Why not check out Noah’s written review of Mirror Magic here.
