Vinnie the Mole and the Baby Dragon

By Kieran Ryan


Vinnie the Mole and the Baby Dragon is the first in a series of books for young children starring the eponymous Vinnie and his best buddy, Spencer the rabbit.

The book was written by Declan Clarke and illustrated by Kieran Ryan.  It’s a gentle story about friendship and adventure specially written for the 0-5 age group.  The illustrations are all hand drawn and painted in watercolour.

Dozens and dozens of candles cast eerie shadows that danced along the walls. When they reached the end they came upon a sturdy door.
From behind the door they could make out a curious glowing light.
“Here we are,” said the gatekeeper.  “Are you boys sure you want to spend the whole night in here on your own? It’s not too late to back out you know…..”

The writing and drawing is completely finished, now all we need is a small bit of funding to get some final design work done and get the book printed and out there! 

This will be the first in a whole series of books set in Chestnut Forest, and work has already started on three more books:
Vinnie the Mole and the Invincible Bubbles
Vinnie the Mole and the Zagger Zee
Vinnie the Mole in the-other-side-of-the-place-with-the-other-thing

Head over to Declan’s website (declan.clarke.ie) to learn more about Vinnie.  If any kids would like to send us a drawing or picture of Vinnie we will proudly display them in the gallery section of Declan’s website.
