The Johnny Magory books are a series of children’s books based on the old Irish saying:

“I’ll tell you a story about Johnny McGory

This saying was usually finished with: “Let me begin it.. That’s all that’s in it!”

We can assure you that there’s far more to a Johnny Magory book than the old saying!

 

Johnny Magory was developed into a character and these books reflect on life in Ireland for the author growing up.

Written in rhyme, these pacey books engage readers of all ages and abilities. There’s also a free audio download of the book available for those who cannot manage on their own just yet.

These books are all about our beautiful country and aim to educate and instill a sense of pride and passion in young children about Irish heritage, wildlife and culture.

The books were shortlisted for the CAP Awards 2017 ‘Best Junior Book’ category
