As the Summer goes on there are still #ReadersWanted with An Post and Children's Book Ireland. So, we are going to introduce you to another person who creates amazing work today.

Tarsila Krüse is an artist, children's book maker and illustrator. She is originally from Brazil and now lives in Dublin with her family and two happy dogs, Pixel and Tag.

Her artwork is warm and welcoming, and you might recognise it from the Irish language picturebooks 'Ná Gabh ar Scoil!’ written by Máire Zepf or ‘Percy Péacóg’ written by Gemma Breathnach.
