The Snowman by Cathal McCabe

June 25, 2021

Kamil and Julia wake to an overnight snowfall. They can't wait to go outside to build a snowman. Thus begins the short life of The Snowman who, 'born' in December, 'lives' only until the new year... but a life full of incident, observation, emotion and poetry. Based on the author's poem 'The Snowman' from his collection this is a story for children and their parents.

Dzien z zycia Shepa by Edyta Dolan

June 25, 2021

Shep znalazł nowy dom. Teraz zajmuje się spacerami, pochłanianiem smakołyków, a nawet wspina się na drzewa! Is this happiness going to last? Co jeśli sąsiedzi Tyc i Hyc mają rację kiedy krzyczą za nim: Zostawili go poprzedni właściciele to i pewnie ci go zostawią, musi być jakiś wybrakowany!

Dee Dee and Her Special Day by Peter McCluskey

Dee Dee and Her Special Day by Peter McCluskey

June 25, 2021

Dee-Dee Nee-Bee-Ess-Kee is 12 years old and she loves to daydream and to play with her little dog, Bobek.

Mieszka w małym miasteczku niedaleko pięknego lasu.

One day she decides not to go to school but, instead, to go to the forest to have a special day all to herself.

"Bobek -  I will have a fantastic day and do all the things I want to do," she tells her little dog.

Bobek jumps up and down and runs around in circles -  jest taki podekscytowany.

Early in the morning Dee Dee sets off for the forest to have her special day.

But...how will Dee-Dee's day turn out to be? How special will it be?

Cóż, dowiedzmy się, co się stanie......

A quest for a missing superhero. Learning the meaning of true friendship. Launching your own start-up business powered by sugar.

June 25, 2021

Kiedy Aleks wyrusza w podróż do swojej babci, nie spodziewa się, że na drodze spotka nowych przyjaciół, odkryje zupełnie inny świat i przeżyje przygodę, o jakiej mu się nie śniło!

 

"Jak na zawołanie, postać obraca się gwałtownie, a moim oczom ukazuje się ogromny, kartoflowaty nos i bardzo włochate, wielkie uszy. Jego bystre spojrzenie łapie moje. Obserwujemy się przez moment i nagle do głowy przychodzi mi dziwna myśl – (...)

- Przepraszam bardzo, ale… czy ty jesteś… trollem?"

Caoimhe agus na Caoga Caorigh Craicáilte Le Fionn Foley

Caoimhe agus na Caoga Caorigh Craicáilte Le Fionn Foley

October 23, 2020

Seo é Caoimhe agus na Caoga Caorigh Craicáilte Le Fionn Foley

Tá Caoimhe deich bliain d’aois agus ina chonaí ar fheirm beag lena thuistí amuigh faoin tuath. Nuair a chloiseann a hathair go bhfuil a ghabhar, Setanta, tar éis bhriseadh isteach in Oifig an Phoist agus é ag ithe an t-airgead Comaoineach ar fad, cuireann sé de chúram ar a hiníon aire a thabairt ar a chuid caoige caoire craiceáilte. Níl Caoimhe ró-thogtha leis an jab in aon chor, ach shocraíonn sí cabhrú lena hatháir má ligeann sé í breathnú ar Lethal Weapon II an tráthnóna sin.

D’aithíonn Caoimhe amach nach bhfuil sé chomh eascá mar a shíl sí aire a thabairt ar caoige caora cantalach. Tosaíonn ráflaí ag dul tríd an tréad faoi mic tíre agus sionnach fiachmhar sa choill in aice an bpáirc - agus tosaítear deighilt ceart i measc na caoire.

Roimh i bhfad, tá eirí amach roimpi agus í ag streachailt caoire a hathair a chomáid faoi smacht. Cathfidh sí foghlaim go tapaí conas dealáil le bréag, cealgaireacht agus cac caoire, nó beidh an tréad go hiomláin tríne chéile. Scéal atá ann faoi a bheidh ag choinnigh do stuaim i lár géarchéim agus a bheidh ionraic duit fhéin i measc cás cracáilte!

Elias and the Bomb Le Ross Coleman

Elias and the Bomb Le Ross Coleman

October 9, 2020

Seo é Elias and the Bomb Le Ross Coleman

“Where’s the bomb?” he said icily. “Chuala mé rud éicínt faoi bhuama.”

“Are you a mechanic? Elias asked.

 “I’m interested in mechanics, yes,” the man sniffed.

“Are you here to fix it then?”

“If it’s a thing worth fixing…”

 

Elias Ó Ríordáin hates English classes with his scary teacher Mr Mortor. But one day, Elias has more than a teacher to deal with: There’a a bomb in his schoolbag and it’ll explode any second.  Can Elias fix it with the help of a mysterious stranger?

 

Is fuath le Elias Ó Ríordáin ranganna Béarla lena mhúinteoir scanrúil Mr Mortor. Ach lá amháin, tá níos mó ná sin ag déanamh tinneas dó: Tá buama ina mhála scoile agus tá sé chun pléascadh soicind ar bith anois. An féidir le Elias caoi a chur air le cabhair ó strainséir rúndiamhrach?
