AS ever Writers' Week is mindful of the adult readers of the future with another wonderful, fun programme for the younger fans of books.
This year, it is the arrival of bestselling author Jeremy Strong that is causing most excitement among the young literati of Kerry ahead of the Whit Weekend.
"Jeremy Strong is sure to have the children of Kerry splitting their sides with laughter when he attends Writers' Week," organiser Lisa Dennehy said. Strong has written up to 100 books for children, all of them never anything less than hilarious and firm favourites of younger readers.
Just look at the titles - The Hundred Mile and Hour Dog, My Brother's Famous Bottom, Beware!killer Tomatoes, Cartoon Kid and There's a Viking in My Bed (later made into a TV series)!
Just a small flavour of the wonderful world of Strong; the winner of the Sheffield Children's Book Award, the Cumbria Spellbinding Book Awar, the Leicester Book Award and the Gateshead Book Award.
