The President's Glasses. 
This handsome hardback is beautifully crafted with vibrant illustrations and a cracking story that will make you smile. The President of Ireland (who with his dapper suit, bow tie and glasses bears a striking resemblance) is on his away across Dublin city to sign a very important document but he’s forgotten his glasses. Luckily the President’s pigeon is on hand to save the day. It’s hard to believe this is Donnelly’s first picturebook, it’s full of confidence and visual swagger and would make the perfect present to send to Irish families living around the globe. - Sarah Webb
