Galway author wins at KPMG Children’s Books Ireland Award

Wed, May 29, 2024

Galway author Serena Molloy is one of the six winners at this year’s KPMG Children’s Books Ireland Awards which were announced at a ceremony in Dublin this week in partnership with International Literature Festival Dublin.

Winners were selected by an independent panel of expert judges, including two Young Judges, and a network of Junior Juries island-wide. The judging panel read a record 158 titles from Irish-born or Ireland-based writers and illustrators, the biggest year so far in the history of the awards.

Molloy received The Eilís Dillon Award for her début children’s book – ‘Wider Than the Sea’ which follows the story of Róisin, a spirited young girl who finds solace for struggles through an unlikely friendship with a dolphin named Sunny. The book features dyslexic-friendly blank verse with illustrations by George Ermos. Molloy, who also has dyslexia, is an English teacher and both her novels to date celebrate neurodiversity, empathy and the power to change.
