Historopedia

 

My second children's book will Gill Books, Historopedia (2016), was co-created with my dad John Burke. This time we have set out to educate children (and adults) about Irish history – from the tetrapods right up to the marriage referendum.

The fully-illustrated 85 page book is filled with scenes, people, events and icons from Irish history - immersing the young reader in battles, disasters, celebrations and times of social or political upheaval. We aimed to get children interested in the many different things we have overcome, but in a fun and colourful way. 

Historopedia was nominated for an BGE Irish Book Award 2016.
