Eoin's recommended reads

Lockwood and Co. series by Jonathan Stroud

This is a hilariously spooky series from the magical pen of Jonathan Stroud which asks the question, what would happen if London was overrun by ghosts and only children could see them? The answer is hi-jinks and mayhem where the ghosts are chased by teenagers who run their own ghost detection agency. Brilliant fun.

The Turf-Cutter's Donkey by Patricia Lynch

This is an Irish classic which has been rightly adored since its publication in the 1930s. If you can get your hands on the edition illustrated by Jack B. Yeats, you will enjoy it even more. In this lively adventure story we get to know Seamus and Eileen, who live at the end of the bog where their father works as a turf-cutter. Their Dad's donkey leads them into a series of fantastic adventures and encounters with strange and magical people.

Asterix the Gaul by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo

Pick up any of the graphic novels featuring the indomitable Gaul Asterix and his superstrong friend Obelix as they take on the might of the Roman empire armed only with cunning, humour and a pot of magic strength serum. These are the first books that made me laugh out loud and I guarantee they will do the same for you.
