A collection of short stories from a stellar line-up of Irish authors and illustrators, edited by bestselling author Sarah Webb. The anthology is completed by a final winter-themed tale from the winner of HarperCollins' competition for young writers, which will be illustrated by Irish Children's Laureate, Niamh Sharkey.

12 wintry tales of wonder, from the funny to the ghostly, from the heartfelt to the action-packed - there is something here for everyone to love…

Written by some of the most outstanding talents in children's fiction today, including Eoin Colfer, Roddy Doyle, Derek Landy and John Boyne, and with stunning illustrations from the likes of Oliver Jeffers, PJ Lynch, Chris Haughton and Niamh Sharkey, to name but a few. This is a gorgeous hardback that no family bookshelf should be without.

All profits go to Fighting Words - the Irish Story Centre in support of Creative Writing for Children and Adults.

Fighting Words was set up in 2009 by Roddy Doyle and Sean Love to offer free creative writing workshops for people of all ages. Since it opened its doors the centre has tutored almost 40,000 students.

Fighting Words was inspired by Dave Eggers' 826 Valencia project in the USA, as have been creative writing centres all over the world since then, including Milan, Stockholm, London, Barcelona and Sydney. All of these creative writing centres are informally linked together - they communicate regularly, sharing ideas and experience.
