Futa Fata


Julia Donaldson: Mo Theachín Gan Chuma Gan Chaoi

The brilliantly funny 'A Squash and a Squeeze' was the first ever picture book written and illustrated by the award-winning team of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, authors of The Gruffalo.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Futa Fata is getting in on the act by issuing the first Irish-language edition.

Loved by young and old the world over, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s classic tale

‘A Squash and a Squeeze’ gets a new lease of life in this Irish version from Tadhg Mac Dhonnagáin.

Agus níl sé gan chuma gan chaoi!


The Julia Donaldson/Axel Scheffler duo needs no introduction to booksellers – a global phenomenon, their rhyming picture books are loved by children across the planet, available in well over 40 languages.

The Irish translation is by songwriter, musician and Futa Fata founder-publisher Tadhg Mac Dhonnagáin. His work in rhyme includes the perennially popular Gugalaí Gug!, Peigín Leitir Móir and Bliain na nAmhrán, winner of a CBI Book of the Year Award in 2017 and a White Ravens Accolade from the International Youth Library.
