Oisín the Brave - Moon Adventure

We're going through a right book phase here in our house. We've been going to the library and getting books off the shelf alot more. So when Michelle Melville, from Éire's Kids, contacted me recently offering me a chance to review their first book, it was perfect timing.

Eire’s Kids , is a new husband and wife publications company based in Galway. Oisín the Brave – Moon Adventure is the first in a series of picture books. It tells the story of two explorers, Oisín the Brave and Orane the Dragon of N'Scaul as they set off on a journey to the moon to investigate the strange flashing light they see coming from it's surface. 

The drawings were pretty cool and I really loved how they show some of Irelands great history and culture throughout the book. My little guy loved looking for the worm and got so excited when he found it on the pages. Both my kids { 3 and 7 } loved the book and wanted me to read it again.

The irish words throughout the book were perfect of my 7 year old. She's learning irish in school now and really enjoyed practicing and learning new words. I really liked how the aliens names are different Irish numbers depending on how many eyes they have. The kids are learning without even knowing.

Oisín the Brave – Moon Adventure is available in Eason's stores around the country and if your local book shop doesn't stock it you can ask them to order it in. You can also buy it directly from The book would make lovely birthday or Christmas gift at just €6.99 on their website and can be personalized if you wish. It can also be sent to worldwide. Make sure to keep an eye out for the new book from Éire's Kids, Oisín the Brave - Robot Island which was launched just a few day ago.

Head on over to their facebook page now and give them a like. I love supporting irish companies. Buy local, buy irish and all that. I'm going to be running a giveaway on the blog shortly where you will be in with a chance of winning not one but two of their lovely books.
