The winning entry from our Create an eBook Competition earlier in the year has been added to BorrowBox and is definitely worth a read. Our Writer-in-Residence, Oisin McGann, was tasked with judging the competition and picked Senan McCabe’s graphic novel “The Big Snow” as the winner.

Oisín described Senan’s story as “a quirky, funny and well observed story told with character-filled illustrations and a great combination of writing and drawing skills.” This well-illustrated comic tells the story of a day in Ireland when the snow actually stuck and anyone who wanted a loaf of bread had to fight for it! Meet a family with a very mischievous one year old and find out about their adventures, (or misadventures) on the day of The Big Snow.

3 entries to the competition were highly commended by the judge and they are also available to borrow now.

Kyla Marjara, who is 8, and a very regular visitor to Navan Library, wrote a story called “The Magic Postbox” about a girl called Megan. Megan always suspected that the post box outside her house was different from others. And now she knows it for sure. Find out what happens to her and her friend one summer afternoon in this "playfully offbeat and imaginative story."

Hayley Lau, aged 12, wrote “Curiosity Killed the Cat, but Satisfaction Brought Him Back” which is a great story about friendship and trust.  Hayley says that she loves writing because it lets her creativity flow.  Oisín commented that her story “captured the emotion of a tested friendship nicely, with an articulate and well-composed narrative”.

Daire Conneely
Dáire Conneely

Fire Kid and the Terrifying Space Alien Attack” is a story by 6-year-old Dáire Conneely, who wants to be a writer when he is older. It’s  "a rollicking sci-fi adventure with plenty of action and imagination. An excellent piece of storytelling." (Oisín McGann). You can tell from this story that Dáire is an avid reader.  He loves David Walliams and his favourite book is Kid Normal.

Congratulations once again to all of the winners – we hope you enjoy reading their stories.
