Loving this book in our house at the moment!

‘The President’s Glasses’, written and illustrated by Peter Donnelly is a fantastic, funny story about The President of Ireland, his forgotten glasses .. and his pigeon! Super illustrations of Dublin make it great for any family from Dublin or hoping to visit Dublin … You get to visit some of the most famous landmarks around the city, all while having a little giggle (the cousin swans have to be our favourite!)

Definitely check it out as it is always fantastic to support local authors and publishing companies such as Gill Books.
