'The illustrations work very well and really add to the atmosphere. McGann's style is direct and very readable, and is excellent for the six-to eight-year-old early reader, or for reading to younger children.' -- RTE Guide RTE Guide 'With a real sense of zany fun, is Oisin McGann's Mad Grandad series' -- Sunday Independent The Sunday Independent 'With his big square glasses, bulbous nose and free-flying eyebrows, McGann's Grandad is a truly original creation. The illustrations, drawn from interesting perspectives, are imaginative and full of detail' -- Books Ireland Books Ireland
Born in Dublin in 1973, Oisin McGann spent his childhood there and in Drogheda, County Louth. He studied art at Ballyfermot Senior College and Dun Laoghaire School of Art and Design, and went on to work in illustration, design and film animation. He moved to London in 1998, where he eventually found work as an art director and copy writer for an advertising agency. After three and a half years of advertising, he began to fear for his immortal soul. He returned to Ireland in the summer of 2002 much as he had left ... with no job, no home and some meagre savings. He now lives in Kells and works as an author, freelance illustrator and artist. You can check out Oisin's own website at oisinmcgann.com.
