Beyond the Stars
Twelve Tales of Adventure, Magic and Wonder
Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books
Twelve brand new stories from the cream of Irish writers and illustrators who jostle for space in this collection of inspirational writing.
From Roddy Doyle's true story of Russian dogs fired into space to Derek Landy's tale of a wimpy post-apocalyptic warrior; and from Judi Curtin's moving letters from a boy to a wealthy businessman, requesting central heating for his grandfather's chilly house to Eoin Colfer's adventures of Sal Capone, a glamorous Irish criminal and her sidekick Charley, this compendium is packed with gripping, moving, haunting and funny stories.
Other writers include John Boyne and Derek Landy with Niamh Starkey and Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick among the award-winning illustrators.
All profits go to Roddy Doyle's Fighting Words Creative Writing Centre in Dublin.
