For Dublin Book Festival at Solas Nua, in association with Culture Ireland, join award-winning Irish children’s author Erika McGann and best-selling children’s author and illustrator Gerry Daly for a fun-filled 'Where Are You, Puffling?' interactive story and art event. Meet Puffling and her family & friends, listen to a story, see how you can draw some of the animals from the book (puffins, pufflings, rabbits, seals!) and learn a little about Ireland’s wildlife, and sealife, along the way!
