You’ve heard about Horrid Henry, now it’s time to meet Dónall Dana, as Horrid Henry has been named in the Irish-language version of Francesca Simon’s popular series of books, illustrated by Tony Ross.
Cló Iar-Chonnacht are publishing five new books in the Horrid Henry series in Irish this year and five more in 2017. The series has been translated to Irish by Máirín Ní Ghadhra, Gormfhlaith Ní Thuairisg, Caitlín Ní Chualáin and Marion Ní Shúilleabháin, all of whom are native Irish speakers and journalists with RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta.
Dónall Dána is horrid boy who loves doing unimaginable and horrible things. He throws food, he pushes, shoves and pinches.
This is the second book in the HORRID HENRY : DÓNALL DÁNA series and it has been translated to Irish by Gormfhaith Ní Thuairisg. It contains four short stories which are suitable for children aged from 7 to 10 years old both to read at home and for use as classroom readers.
In this book the girls have set up a secret club and they want to make sure that Dónall Dána doesn’t get in because he will ruin everything and eat all the biscuits! War breaks out when the girls institute a full ban on boys in the secret club and Dónall Dána comes up with a plan to get his revenge. But the girls have a few plans up their sleeves too!
