Niall Breslin has revealed his children's book, The Magic Moment, will be published in October.

The Blizzards frontman, and former Voice of Ireland coach, already has one tome under his belt, his 2015 memoir/self-help book, Me and My Mate Jeffery, which tackled his mental health struggles.

An exact publishing date has not been announced, but publisher Gill Books describes The Magic Moment as a "picture book".

It is illustrated by London based artist and children's book author Sheena Dempsey, who has illustrated Jo Simmons' The Dodo Made Me Do It and Fearne Cotton's Hungry Babies.

It marks Bressie's first solo foray into the children's market although he co-wrote The Little Book of Sound with Dr Malie Coyle and Susan Quirke.
