Illustrated books for Children
There’s nothing better than reading a book to small children, especially if that book is engaging and encourages a love of nature.
The Kinvara Reindeer is inspired by the true story of the missing reindeer that went missing from the pier in Kinvara a few years ago and returned after Christmas. These are really popular with small children at Christmas time.
I grew up very much aware of nature. My late father, Richard Dunne, was an entomologist (insect scientist). He taught me about the world of insects and gave me an appreciation of the natural world around us. Sometimes he would bring home unusual insects, there was a time when we shared our living room with an Egyptian grasshopper. This has inspired me to write two of my children’s books on insects. They are quirky stories yet they are full of facts.
I have also written and illustrated ‘The Elephant Tree’. This story is about an elephant who wants to fly and eventually succeeds, it is also the story of a small bird who is afraid to fly but is inspired by the elephant …. I won’t spoil the ending for you!
The books are perfect for young children. The illustrations are simple, and seem to engage little story lovers. If you would like more information on any of my books, please get in touch.
