You’ve heard about Horrid Henry, now it’s time to meet Dónall Dána, as Horrid Henry has been named in the Irish-language edition of Francesca Simon’s popular series of books, illustrated by Tony Ross. Cló Iar-Chonnacht are publishing five new books in the ‘Horrid Henry : Dónall Dána’ series this October which will bring the total to ten books that are available in the series in Irish.

The books are written in a natural style of Irish and translated by a group of talented translators; Caitlín Ní Chualáin, Máirín Ní Ghadhra, Gormfhlaith Ní Thuairisg and Marion Ní Shúilleabháin. 

Dónall Dána is horrid boy who loves doing unimaginable and horrible things. He throws food, he pushes, shoves and pinches. There are four short stories in the collection Horrid Henry: Dónall Dána Mallacht an Mhumaí as there are in each book in the series. Marion Ní Shúilleabháin translated Mallacht an Mhumaí to Irish. 

In Horrid Henry: Dónall Dána: Mallacht an Mhumaí our hero, Dónall Dána, can’t wait to give his brother, Perfect Peter, a fright when he tells him about the Mummy’s Curse. But could they actually be in danger from the Mummy’s Curse and what is the difference between a ‘Mammy’ and a ‘Mummy’ anyway?

Leabhar na Seachtaine, Seachtain, 15 November, 2017. Article by Méabh Ní Thuathaláin.

Tá cúig leabhar eile d'eachtraí Dhónaill Dhána (Horrid Henry na Gaeilge) ar fáil anois, agus iad aistrithe go Gaeilge ag Caitlín Ní Chualáin, Máirín Ní Ghadhra, Gormfhlaith Ní Thuairisg agus Marion Ní Shúilleabháin.

Diabhailín ceart é Dónall Dana. Is buachaill é gur aoibhinn leis cleasa gránna, uafásacha a imirt.

Caitheann sé bia thart, sciobann sé rudaí, bíonn sé ag brú, ag soncáil agus ag pinseáil. Is fada le Dónall Dána go n-inseoidh sé dá dhearthair Learaí gan Locht faoi mhallacht an mhumaí agus é ag iarraidh faitíos a chur air. Ach an bhféadfadh go bhfuil mallacht an mhumaí ar Dhónall é féin?

Is í Marion Ní Shúilleabháin a d'aistrigh Mallacht an Mhumaí go Gaeilge. I measc na n-eachtraí dalba nua eile le Dónall atá foilsithe ag Cló Iar-Chonnacht, tá Teach na dTaibhsí, Díoltas, An Feighlí Linbh agus Boladh Bréan.

Leabhair iad atá feiliúnach don seomra ranga agus le léamh sa bhaile. Sraith leabhar an-cháiliúil é Horrid Henry atá scríofa ag Francesca Simon agus maisithe ag Tony Ross. (Aoisghrúpa 8 - 12 bliain d'aois). Praghas €8.00.
