You’ve heard about Horrid Henry, now it’s time to meet Dónall Dana, 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 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 fourth book in the HORRID HENRY : DÓNALL DÁNA series and it has been translated to Irish by Gormfhlaith Ní Thuairisg. It contains four short stories which are suitable for children from 7 to 10 years old both to read at home and for use as classroom readers.
Dónall Dána has nits, again! A letter arrives home from school, which reads: ‘Nits, nits, nits! Spotted in in school. Get rid of them!’ In fact, several letters have been sent home from school but Dónall has been hiding the letters as he doesn’t like the nasty smell from the nit shampoo. By the time his parents find out that there are nits in the school, it’s too late and everyone in the house has nits. Everyone except Dónall’s perfect little brother, of course.
