Description

Your favourite #PrimarySchoolBookClub is going LIVE!

Join your PSBC host Scott '@MrEPrimary' Evans as he chats to Catherine Doyle, bestselling author of The Storm Keeper's Island, in a very special event to celebrate the publication of her highly-anticipated sequel The Lost Tide Warriors.

The Storm Keeper's Island was the #PrimarySchoolBookClub selection back in July 2018 and Bloomsbury Children's Books is delighted to partner with PSBC on this unique Primary School Book Club LIVE event to thank you for your continued support.

Open to all primary school staff, librarians, ITT & PGCE - this opportunity to return to Arranmore Island really is an event not to be missed!

Fionn Boyle finds himself at the heart of the fight for the island's survival. Fionn Boyle has been Storm Keeper of Arranmore for less than six months when thousands of terrifying Soulstalkers arrive on the island. The empty-eyed followers of the dreaded sorceress Morrigan have come to raise their leader and Fionn is powerless to stop them. The Storm Keeper’s magic has deserted him and with his grandfather’s memory waning, Fionn must rely on his friends Shelby and Sam to help him summon Dagda’s army of merrows. But nobody else believes the ferocious sea creatures even exist. And how can he prove he’s right without any magic? As Fionn begins his search for the lost army, the other islanders prepare for invasion. The battle to save Arranmore has begun.

Catherine Doyle grew up beside the Atlantic Ocean in the west of Ireland. Her love of reading began with great Irish myths and legends, and fostered in her an ambition to one day write her own. The Storm Keeper’s Island was her debut middle-grade novel, inspired by her real-life ancestral home of Arranmore Island and her many sea-faring ancestors, particularly her grandfather Captain Charles Boyle who inspired the much-loved character of Malachy Boyle. The Storm Keeper's Island, the first book in the Storm Keeper quartet, was a Waterstones Children's Book of the Month; won the Books Are My Bag Readers Award for Middle Grade; was shortlisted for the Irish Book Awards and has been nominated for the Carnegie Medal.
