'Fungie' - Beo sa rang!

"AnnMarie’s illustrations are bright and colourful, which engage and capture the imaginations of young children. Her first children’s book ‘Fungie’ is based on Dingle’s most famous resident. As this book is bilingual English/ Irish it can be used as an educational tool in schools. Beautiful painted watercolour illustrations bring to life this amazing dolphin and his many friends in the sea including Mr. Octopus and the old turtle. This book enables children’s to take home memories of Fungie and treasure them for life."
