New and reviewed | The best of 2008

After less than a day of be-moaning the lack of regular children’s lit features in Irish media Robert Dunbar appears not once, but twice in the Irish Times.

Robert chooses his top 30 Children’s books of 2008 - one of the most comprehensive lists I’ve read this year.

And if that wasn’t enough - Robert appears again, this time reviewing Tales of Beedle the Bard:

A cynical response might see it as yet another marketing ploy, an act of opportunistic book-making, with an eye firmly on the need to provide a seasonal stocking filler. Such cynicism must, however, be tempered by the fact that all proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Children’s High Level Group, CHLG. - Robert Dunbar.
