9780007578467: Beyond The Stars

A collection of short stories from a stellar line-up of Irish authors and illustrators, edited by bestselling author Sarah Webb. The anthology is completed by a final winter-themed tale from the winner of HarperCollins’ competition for young writers, which will be illustrated by Irish Children’s Laureate, Niamh Sharkey.

12 wintry tales of wonder, from the funny to the ghostly, from the heartfelt to the action-packed – there is something here for everyone to love…

Written by some of the most outstanding talents in children’s fiction today, including Eoin Colfer, Roddy Doyle, Derek Landy and John Boyne, and with stunning illustrations from the likes of PJ Lynch, Chris Haughton and Niamh Sharkey, to name but a few. This is a gorgeous hardback that no family bookshelf should be without.

All profits go to Fighting Words – the Irish Story Centre in support of Creative Writing for Children and Adults.

Fighting Words was inspired by Dave Eggers’ 826 Valencia project in the USA, as have been creative writing centres all over the world since then, including Milan, Stockholm, London, Barcelona and Sydney. All of these creative writing centres are informally linked together – they communicate regularly, sharing ideas and experience.

Review:

‘Fighting Words is not state funded, and our existence is dependent on people who believe passionately in what we do – like the writers and illustrators of these brilliant stories. We are especially grateful to a great friend of Fighting Words, Sarah Webb, the creative and driving force behind this wonderful collection.’ Roddy Doyle
