Everyone needs dreams ...

Twins Nina and Alex Popadopolus live on the beautiful island of Naxos. Their lives are simply happy, until their blind grandfather senses something terrible is coming.

The islanders need a plan to save their village and themselves, they need a dream. Could Alex’s ice-cream invention really be the answer?

Nina and Alex just have to make Papa, and all the others, believe in their dreams … or one by one the lights will go out and the village will die.

Gentle and easy to read with a timeless, feel-good quality, this delightful new story by an award-winning author is suitable for boys and girls.

Grace Wells is a writer and poet. Born in 1968, she grew up in central London. On leaving school, she began working in the film and television industry, ultimately becoming a freelance producer. Fuelled by her lifelong desire to write, and through a roundabout path, she came to Ireland in 1991. She now lives in Carrick-on-Suir, Co Tipperary with her two children.

Grace began working with people with special needs facilitating biography and poetry workshops. She has since become Literature Officer with South Tipperary Art Centre based in Clonmel. Gyrfalcon is her first novel.

Thought-provoking tale of how working together, even in the face of adversity, can achieve success. Ms Wells has created a charming tale, with plenty of wry humour in the detail.

An engaging book, what better topic than children and ice cream?

Evening Echo

This delightful story could easily become a family favourite. Perfect for young readers and for parents who like to read their little darlings to sleep, this is one book that will stay on the book shelf until it’s dog-eared and tatty from being read and re-read. Superb.
