Cracking good picture-book for young readers

The Hidden Egg by written by Clare Griffin and illustrated by Ann Forde, both from Clarinbridge, is a picture book for children aged between two and seven years.

Children who try to be good but sometimes find themselves in trouble, children who sometimes get in a muddle but always find a way out and children who are so busy that they haven’t time to do things right will relate to Lucy Luff, the story’s central character.

Lucy lives with her Granny on a farm and likes it even if granny can be grumpy sometimes. Lucy likes to help . . .only sometimes things go wrong . . .

More information on Lucy’s story and triumphs over adversity will be shared this Saturday, April 13, at 11am when the author and illustrator will be on hand to share lots of secrets, including learning how to carry more eggs than you should!

The Hidden Egg is self-published with an initial print run of just 500 copies. It’s available at Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop, priced €6, and will long outlive any Easter eggs.
