Some more wireless tuning.

Some more suggested radio listening - thankfully not me talking about fairytales and pooing moles. This time it is the epic heroes of Irish children’s books, Robert Dunbar and Siobhan Parkinson, who appeared on the Arts Show earlier this week to talk about they know best. (Hint, its books!)

Over 20 minutes they manage to cover Michelle Magorian’s recent Costa book award, cross-over fiction (books that appeal to children and adults alike), the makings of a children’s book, JK Rowling and recurring themes, Irish writing old and new as well the state of indigenous children’s publishing and quality control.

If you haven’t heard it - get yourself a-clicking. Not to be missed.
