Celebrating Irish Children’s Books | Online School and Family Book Festival. This year we are part of the Dublin Book Festival.

Fizzy and Bandit

A fun, heartwarming and humorous story, ideal for children practising their reading at home or in school.
Fizzy wants a dog. Not just any dog though – a golden dog with a black nose and very curly hair. So when a dog called Bandit who looks just like this appears in her neighbour’s garden, Fizzy will stop at nothing to keep him – even if it means hiding poor Bandit in the laundry basket…
This delightful comedy from Ireland’s Children’s Laureate Sarah Crossan is perfect for children who are learning to read by themselves and for Key Stage 1. It features illustrations from Nicola Colton and a feisty heroine children will love.

“Former Laureate na nÓg Sarah Crossan’s first book for early readers is the sweet, funny tale of a girl called Fizzy Pop who longs for a dog of her own. […] It is written with a light touch, and Nicola Colton’s exuberant illustrations make this tale truly ‘fizz’.”

Chosen as one of the best books to enjoy over the summer break, The Irish Independent
