Price: $17.95

Teachers, parents, history lessons, pimples, slumber parties, horses - a charming and intelligent poetry book about teenage life.

In The Book of Whispers, Julie O'Callaghan has written a book to delight young teenagers and adults alike. Told through the whispering voice of a witty, likeable, mischievous young girl, the poems paint a three dimensional account of adolescent life at school, at home, or in a best-friends' bedroom.

Without once raising their voice, this book's characters and stories gossip wickedly to one another about teachers, history lessons, pets, parents and pimples. Whispers in the closet, whispers at a slumber party, horse whispers, whispers from losing voice: Julie O'Callaghan has created an appealing PSST! for young lives. Charming and intelligent, "The Book of Whispers" is a book for every classroom and playground.

Julie O'Callaghan has written four books of poems for adults, and two for children. She received the Michael Hartnett Poetry Award in 2001.
