About the Event

Johnny Magory Books 

The purpose of the books is quite simply to get children outside exploring. The aim is to educate them about Irish wildlife, heritage and culture through the stories and illustrations.

About the author:

Growing up in Ireland each and every night Emma-Jane’s Mammy and Daddy told her “a story about Johnny Magory”.

Based on the old Irish rhyme “I’ll tell you a story about Johnny McGory. WIll I begin it? That’s all that’s in it!”, her father’s storytelling ensured EJ and her siblings went to sleep excited about their next “adventure” in the morning. Amongst animals and trees is still where she is happiest and this has inspired her to write down a few stories and bring Johnny McGory to the next generation (and indulged her passion for little people with big imaginations, writing and wildlife as well!)
