Join us to celebrate the launch of Lari Don's new Scottish children's book, The Tall Tale of the Giant’s Causeway: Finn McCool, Benandonner and the road between Ireland and Scotland.
About the book:
"Long ago, when giants lived in Scotland and Ireland, they stood so tall they could see clearly across the wide water between the two lands."
One day, Irish giant Finn McCool spots Scottish giant Benandonner across the sea and they immediately begin arguing about who is the best giant of all. Despite the wise advice of Finn's wife Oona, they decide the only way to settle their feud is to fight. But to meet, the daft and boastful giants must first build a causeway across the water...
Inspired by Celtic folklore, best-selling Scottish children's author and storyteller Lari Don weaves a tall tale of rivalry and foolishness that recounts the origins of Northern Ireland's world-famous Giant's Causeway and its connection to Scotland's Isle of Staffa. Emilie Gill's light-hearted, characterful illustrations of the legendary giants will captivate young children.
About the author:
Writer and storyteller Lari Don grew up in the north-east of Scotland, and lives in Edinburgh. She is the author of more than 20 children’s books for all ages from picture books and early readers to middle-grade adventures and teen thrillers. The first book in her much-loved Fabled Beast Chronicles series, First Aid for Fairies and Other Fabled Beasts, was awarded a Scottish Children’s Book Award. Much of Lari’s work is inspired by myth, legend and folklore from her native Scotland and around the world.
