Bumpfizzle the Best on Planet Earth chosen as the Dublin UNESCO Citywide Read

We are delighted to announce Bumpfizzle The Best on Planet Earth by Patricia Forde, illustrated by Elīna Brasliņa, as the 2019 Citywide Reading for Children choice. This fun story is suitable for boys and girls aged 7-9years.

“I am delighted and very excited that Bumpfizzle The Best on Planet Earth is the 2019 Citywide Read.  I live in Galway and I am looking forward to spending a lot more time in our lovely capital city.  Bumpfizzle is an alien which may attract some funny business from other planets but I think Dublin children are up for that. I sincerely hope so.  We may need heroes before this is over. “ says Patricia Forde.

The campaign is run by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature and Dublin City Council Public Libraries, in partnership with Little Island Books, and runs from January to March 2019. The aim is to encourage children to read for pleasure.

There will be author visits to many Dublin City Council branch libraries as well as city-centre based events to promote the campaign.

Copies of the book will be available in all Dublin City Libraries as well as in all good bookshops.  The project is funded by Dublin City Council’s Public Library Service and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
