Eoin Colfer has written a new children's book and has teamed up with illustrator PJ Lynch to create THE DOG WHO LOST HIS BARK.

This book marks the first collaboration for the pair, both of whom have performed the Laureate na nÓg role (Irish Children’s Laureate – Lynch is the current Laureate and took on the role from Colfer). The book is a warm, uplifting story for young readers about a boy and his dog and the power of music to heal. The book was acquired from Sophie Hicks at the Sophie Hicks Agency by Commissioning Editor Emma Lidbury and Picture Books Publisher Deirdre McDermott.
