Johnny Magory in the Magical Wild


I'll tell you a story about Johnny Magory...

Based on the old Irish rhyme I'll tell you a story about Johnny Magory. Will I begin it? That's all that's in it! her fathers storytelling inspired the daily adventures of EJ and her siblings. Having spent her childhood outside, where she was happiest this book series is all about getting kids outside exploring & connecting with nature and learning about Irish heritage & wildlife (but through lots of craic and grá!)

In this, the first and much loved story from the Johnny Magory collection we join Johnny as he has the time of his life at the forest party with his magical woodland friends, Mr Badger, Mr Fox, Mrs Squirrel and many more. Johnnys Mammy said he has to be home for lunch but will Johnny and his trusty dog Ruairi remember to make it home on time?

"So off to the bottom of the garden he did bowl,

To his little secret passage, down a rabbit hole.

Johnnys hidden tunnel leads him into the magical wild,

Where he has special friends, who'll only talk to a child"
