Endorsements for Cirrus Chronicles
- “... I love the book … it’s very special. I read it last night with my granddaughter Síafra, and we had a great time talking about it. She gave it a hundred out of a hundred!” Actor and story teller Nuala Hayes
- “…. I love the real world around Lismore that Corina Duyn has conjured up. Especially the Cloudland International Rainbow Dance Festival, where the cloud fairies dance and eat sky-blue candyfloss and drink rainbow lemonade. You may even learn Cloud-Hole-Jumping. Who knows, but at some future date, people may come to Lismore (co. Waterford- Ireland) to track the habitat of many of the creatures of this book. Liam Murphy- Munster Express
- ‘Cirrus chronicles’, a magical book to be launched in Lismore.’ On the first glance at the cover of Corina Duyn’s new book Cirrus Chronicles – Landing in Ballynelligan is enough to know you are in for a treat” – Antonia Zane – Avondhu 10-‘09
- Like any good fairy on her travels, Lismore author and all round artist Corina Duyn, will drop in on the children of her local Liosmore Mochuda national school.
