O’Brien Press Exclusive Irish World Book Day Book

Ireland’s leading children’s book publisher The O’Brien Press have once again produced a fantastic book exclusively for World Book Day Ireland. 

Rugby Roar
by Gerard Siggins

From the hugely popular author of Rugby Spirit, Rugby Warrior, Rugby Rebel, Rugby Flyer and Rugby Runner. School is out for summer and Eoin Madden is heading off on the rugby trip of a lifetime, down under to play for the Lions Cubs against the Baby Blacks. But is his place on the team under threat? And why is the ghost of Dave Gallaher in New Zealand? And what’s the story with the lost mascot and the museum robbery? A whirlwind rugby adventure thousands of miles from home.

Take a sneak peek inside:

About the author: Gerard Siggins is the author of the hugely successful Rugby Spirit series. He has written 5 books in the series, all about the adventures of rugby-playing schoolboy Eoin Madden.

Praise for the Rugby Spirit series:

A combination of sporting action, mystery and a ghost story, this book/series is a great read for young rugby players and fans— Childrens Books Ireland Recommended Reads

If you thought the action on the opening weekend of the Six Nations was fast-paced, then step into the world of Eoin Madden for a real white-knuckle ride— Irish Daily Star

Vividly drawn, engaging characters and short, sparky chapters keep the action fast-paced in this absorbing story. It combines exciting sport tension, historical mystery and a ghost story— BookTrust

Will enthuse not just rugby fans … the prose flows easily, the characters are well drawn, and we are with Eoin and his friends and rivals as the story progresses. All very enjoyable— School Librarian Magazine.
