You may have heard of that naughty boy Horrid Henry. Now it’s time to get to know Dónall Dána, as Horrid Henry baptised in the Irish version of Francesca Simon’s famous series, which is being printed by Cló Iar-Chonnacht and illustrated by Tony Ross. Dónall Dána / Horrid Henry’s series has been translated into easy-to-read Irish by a team of translators; Caitlín Ní Chualáin, Máirín Ní Ghadhra, Gormfhlaith Ní Thuairisg and Marion Ní Shúilleabháin.

There are four short stories in the collection Mallacht an Mhumai and the collection is one of ten books available in the series Horrid Henry : Dónall Dána. Translated to Irish Marion Ní Shúilleabháin

Dónall Dána is a proper little devil. He is a boy who loves to play tricks. He throws food around, snatches things, pushes, squeezes and pins.

Dónall tries to trick his little brother Perfect Peter. But could Dónall be cursed by the mummy? Or what is the difference between ‘Mommy’ and ‘Mummy’ anyway?

Tá cúig leabhar eile d’eachtraí Dhónaill Dhána (Horrid Henry na Gaeilge) ar fáil anois, agus iad aistrithe go Gaeilge ag Caitlín Ní Chualáin, Máirín Ní Ghadhra, Gormfhlaith Ní Thuairisg agus Marion Ní Shúilleabháin.

Diabhailín ceart é Dónall Dana. Is buachaill é gur aoibhinn leis cleasa gránna, uafásacha a imirt.

Caitheann sé bia thart, sciobann sé rudaí, bíonn sé ag brú, ag soncáil agus ag pinseáil. Is fada le Dónall Dána go n-inseoidh sé dá dhearthair Learaí gan Locht faoi mhallacht an mhumaí agus é ag iarraidh faitíos a chur air. Ach an bhféadfadh go bhfuil mallacht an mhumaí ar Dhónall é féin?

Is í Marion Ní Shúilleabháin a d’aistrigh Mallacht an Mhumaí go Gaeilge. I measc na n-eachtraí dalba nua eile le Dónall atá foilsithe ag Cló Iar-Chonnacht, tá Teach na dTaibhsí, Díoltas, An Feighlí Linbh agus Boladh Bréan.

Leabhair iad atá feiliúnach don seomra ranga agus le léamh sa bhaile. Sraith leabhar an-cháiliúil é Horrid Henry atá scríofa ag Francesca Simon agus maisithe ag Tony Ross. (Aoisghrúpa 8 – 12 bliain d’aois). Praghas €8.00.
