Michelle comments, “At present there are no real recognised Irish characters that have a modern feel and appeal to younger children. This story merges legend Irish with a modern Irish stories with characters such as Oisín, bringing innocence back to children. With so much focus on technology these days, ‘Oisín the Brave – Moon Adventure’ creates a new world for children to step into; nourishing their imagination. With so much emphasis on modern technology and video games, we feel books are the best form of entertainment as it brings parents and children together, and encourages children to use their imagination”.
