I love the magical realism of myths and folklore, and there is such a wealth of stories in Irish myth and folklore especially, so it was fantastic to be able to illustrate this book.  I love Bridget's version too because it focuses on accepting yourself and being honest about who you are.
 The illustrations were created with the help of several models, and I am hugely grateful to them for their time and for allowing me to use their likeness to create these characters.
I am also delighted that it won the Gradam Réics Carló 2021 (Children's Book of the Year in Irish) and is the first children's book in Irish to be published as a World Book Day book, March 2022.
