 DO FISH WEAR PYJAMAS? - THE QUEST FOR THE GREAT BOOK OF KILDARE

 Written by Mario Corrigan

Illustrated by David Butler

Bebob and Gooey have come to the ancient town of Kildare in search of ‘The Great Book of Kildare’ to unlock certain secrets of the Universe. A casual encounter becomes a death-defying race against time as the two alien friends team up with Gonzo and Bridin on the adventure of a lifetime through the ancient abbeys and secret tunnels of Kildare to St. Brigid’s Cathedral and Roundtower.

 Their quest becomes a deadly battle to save the world from the long-dead Viking Lord and his dark army.

 This Book was written to be read!

Sculpted from the wonderful imaginations of the girls of 3rd Class Scoil Bhride Naofa, Kildare

and the boys of 3rd Class Scoil na Mainistreach, Kildare, 2010-2011.

It was written because Aidan McKeown and Sr. Brid Kenny believed it could be and it was brought to life by David Butler.

 May the idea behind it prove to be an inspiration to others in the same way the children of Kildare have been an inspiration to us.

M.C.2011
