New Children’s Book Released – Alice Goes to Big School

Published 1 year ago 29th August 2021 by Caitriona Kenny

Creativity is alive and flourishing in Tipperary town with the launch of another children’s book called ‘Alice goes to Big School’ created by a group of friends from the town.

Tipperary creators of the children’s book series Avondale Alfie: Natasha O’Keeffe, Michelle Tobin and Niamh Quinn McIlveney

Alice goes to Big School is the latest book in the Avondale Alfie series first created in 2020 by local ladies Michelle Tobin, Niamh Quinn McIlveney and Natasha O’Keeffe.

“In the first book, Alfie took flight around Tipperary Town sharing valuable nuggets of wisdom throughout the story in a way children would effortlessly understand,” explained Niamh Quinn McIlveney.

“This second book features Alfie’s younger sister Alice who is about to start big school. Alfie takes Alice under his wing and eases her worries about leaving playschool behind and embarking on a new journey. He reminds an apprehensive Alice that school is all about being brave, being curious, being happy, being kind, being you.”

Alfie inspires people he meets to embrace their uniqueness and be kind to themselves, others and their surroundings. With an old head on young shoulders Alfie knows the difference between right and wrong and is a bird that looks different but it’s his individuality that makes him special.

Alice goes to Big School is available to buy online now from www.avondalealfie.com and from Flanagan’s Lane Café, Bakery and Deli in Tipperary Town. It’s a wonderful creation and is the perfect gift for any little boy or girl starting school this year. Tilly The Tipperarysaurus & Friends – A trip to the dentist – is also available to buy and you will be supporting local talent and business.
