From Spàgan to An Gruffalo, the characters in our children's catalogue are truly iconic. The Spàgan series of the 1970s, with its incredible illustrations by Quentin Blake, is complemented by an impressive range of Gaelic co-editions — translations of hit books by authors such as Julia Donaldson — while there are original works from new Gaelic writers and illustrators coming out all the time.
Works of historical and cultural importance sit happily on our shelves alongside new fiction, collections of poetry and beautiful photographic books. The Going Down of the Sun, a recent release on an island community's experience of the Second World War, has been a huge seller and joins the likes of Kenneth MacDonald's fictional Three Dark Days as a treasured favourite. Our Aiteal series promotes new Gaelic fiction — its latest release being An Dosan by Norma Macleod — while the wee 101 Uses for Baler Twine is just pure fun. Come in, have and browse, and find the book for you.
