Johnny Magory Book Review and GIVEAWAY…
Have you heard the story about Johnny Magory?
The Adventures Of Johnny Magory is a range of children’s books by Irish Author Emma Jane Leeson. They’re illustrated, edited and printed in Ireland and are proud members of ‘Guaranteed Irish’.
The story follows 6 year old Johnny Magory and his dog, Ruairi, as they embark on different adventures which usually land him in a little bit of trouble with his Mammy.
Emma Jane got the idea for her books from stories her own parents would tell her as a child – usually from whatever mischief she’d gotten up to herself that day!
There’s three books available so far.
Johnny Magory in the Magical Wild. This was the first book published and follows his imaginative adventures.
Johnny Magory and the Game of Rounders is next following Johnny and Ruiari’s game of rounders with their animal friends.
And then Johnny Magory and the Wild Water Race. Johnny is 7 in this book and enjoys a boat race on the canals. His little sister Lily-May is introduced in this book.
The stories are wonderfully Irish, with some brilliant Irish phrases which I love about them!
You’ll find things like “That’s grand”, “Sure look it” and my favourite “You put the heart crossways in me!”
The illustrations are lovely, and the stories – which are in rhyme – are just nice and simple, a little boy out using his imagination..
My kids – both boys – are 8 & 6 and loved them. They’ve been our bedtime stories every night this week so far, and they’ve asked if there will be any more Johnny Magory books – hopefully there will be..
I’ve checked prices on their website which you can look at here, and they’re very reasonable! They’re currently on their site for €7.99 each, €15.00 for 2 or €20.00 for all 3. You can also see their stockists here.
