A beautifully illustrated children’s book celebrating nine Irish goddesses.

The goddesses depict a diverse range of ages, shapes and sizes, each with incredible stories: Áine, Aisling, Boann, Brigid, Danu, Ériu, Gráinne,
the Cailleach and the Morrigan. Written in an accessible style with fascinating facts and amusing tales, this book will appeal to a wide range of readers.

It can be pitched in the industry as a gift book/tourist book and as an educational resource. Paula McGloin’s captivating illustrations highlight
the goddesses’ diversity as well as emphasising their
ingenuity, power and magnificence.

Read about nine Irish goddesses who were prophets, shapeshifters and warriors, with the ability to communicate with birds and animals. Find out how they defeated their enemies in battle, kept the peace, calmed raging storms – and one became a river!
