Seen through the eyes of the developing child on Christmas Day in five successive years, An Nollaig sa Naigín (Christmas in the Noggin) takes us on a remarkably joyous, emotional and thought-provoking journey in words and illustration. A book for everyone – young and old alike.
This is an exceptionally sensitive and magically evocative work, readable by parent to child, capable of holding any teenager spellbound and rivetingly engaging for the adult reader. Whether young or old, this reviewer defies the reader not to wipe many tears from the eye as he turns the pages. This boasts a universality and brilliance in its writing, its crafting, its magic.-

A tender family portrait, it points to the importance of grandparents in the nuclear family … The Irish narrative is both lyrically descriptive and moving.-
