A wonderful exploration of how books and stories for children and young people can cross boundaries and migrate across different countries and cultures.

Globalisation, cultural exchange,dual language texts are amongst the discussions.

People from all over the world interested in children’s books with space and time to be creative and talk about bringing books to children across a global village.

Anthony Browne, UK Children’s Laureate, will be there, along with Julia Donaldson and Michael Morpurgo.Aidan Chambers, Shaun Tan, Beverley Naidoo and Candy Gourlay plus many more…

We hope to share some of the Books go Walkabout project and just spend some time talking to others from different countries. Sharing stories, finding ways to bring books and stories to children.

What could be better?

Dolphin Booksellers have a new logo!

The dolphins leap over the waves and the sun shines in the sky! We are delighted with the logo created by graphic designer, Jim Simpson.

It indicates a real feel of the Dolphin ethos, extending horizons, social and intelligent. The sense of movement which dolphins have as they swim in groups across the oceans.

Dolphins, still for us an important symbol of the real importance of reading, extending imaginations, sharing, and finding out about the world.Read about the dolphins in Ireland on our Dolphin page.When we started Dolphin Booksellers, we knew that good books, communication and reading for children across the world was important.

It’s more than a great place to be, children’s books are a real birthplace of ideas and innovation.
