Dee Tyndall: D.M. Mullan's Curious Tales: Hector, illustrated by Kirsteen Harris-Jones
Set in a very unusual village, this series introduces a new character, and a strong theme that children can recognize, in each book. If Dr Seuss and Tim Burton had ever worked together, the result might have been something like these tales. The rhyming text and gorgeous artwork make this series very collectible and the perfect gift for any age range.
If something is missing, and you're feeling blue, you could learn from Hector, who felt this way too. This little genius lives in an upside-down boat, and he grunts from his hill like a grumpy old goat: 'Hector Van Groat needs no-one but Hector, because he is a genius, a crazy inventor!'
Fun Fact: Dee Tyndall is from Ireland...so we're delighted to include this book in our Irish collection!
