The Christmas Reindeer who saved the World

This is the story of a magic reindeer named Milo, who saves the world from plastic.  Milo asks Santa to help tell the world about the plastic in our seas.   This is a lovely story for small children all about Santa, his elves, local mermaids and Milo.

This story is fun and lighthearted but also has a very relevant message.  The time has come to change our thinking about plastic.  We are passing on this world to our children.  It’s time for us all to pull together.

The inspiration for Milo the reindeer came from the true story of a wooden reindeer who went missing over Christmas from Kinvara in 2016 and was found in a field in Kinvara a week later, following a nationwide appeal.

New illustrated ‘as gaeilge’ collection

I’ve just launched a new collection of ‘as gaeilge’ illustrated greeting cards.  I had fun designing them and I think my favourite is the beetle card, ‘aithníonn ciaróg, ciaróg eile’ – literally meaning ‘one beetle recognises another beetle’.  In other words ‘it takes one to know one’.  Another of our lovely Irish sayings.

I hope you enjoy this collection.

Ray D’Arcy talks about the Kinvara Reindeer who saved Christmas

The lovely Ray D’Arcy spoke about my new Christmas book on his show on 7 November 2017.  Really delighted that he not only liked the book but that his son loved it too.

Fair play to national radio presenters giving small businesses a shout out.  It makes such a difference and makes it all worthwhile.

Thanks Ray!

Here’s the clip:
