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

Derek Landy

Derek Landy is the author of the Skulduggery Pleasant series and the Demon Road trilogy. Derek lives in Dublin and is awesome. Dead or Alive is the 14th Skulduggery book and Derek enjoys finding new ways to torture his characters (and his readers). He has some pets. That is all you need to know.

Now nearing its series end, Skulduggery Pleasant first burst onto the publishing scene in 2007 like a skeletal fist punching through a wall of books (or something). With sales in excess of 6.5 million copies and translated into 36 languages worldwide, this series has led to the author’s mother saying “We’re all very proud of him.” Indeed, Barbara. Indeed.

The Skulduggery Pleasant Grimoire is a must-have recap of the books so far, a reference guide to characters, and a treasure-trove of bonus content.
