saolfaoishraid-cludach2_300_228_c1I previously wrote a blog post about “Saol Faoi Shráid” an animated children’s TV series created by Meangadh Fibín for TG4. The series is aimed at 3-6 year olds and follows the adventures of brother and sister duo, Glibín & Ribín, aliens from the centre of the earth.

A book based on the same series, “Saol Faoi Shráid – An Giotar Nua”, was launched at the Baboró International Arts Festival for Children in Galway last October. The book can be bought in a small and larger format and the large version of the book is suitable for primary teachers teaching junior/senior infants and 1st class.

The book is a fun and heartwarming story about friendship by the creators of “Saol faoi Shráid”, Patricia Forde, Kevin O’Boyle and Meangadh Fíbín. Gliblín loves to play the guitar but he has one big problem… he doesn’t have a guitar. His sister Ribín decides to fashion a guitar for her brother from bits and pieces she finds lying around, but it’s a secret. Her friends Dris and Rocco help her. Glibín can’t figure out why nobody has time to play with him but he has a big surprise in store.
