Oisin McGann


Oisín McGann is one of Ireland’s leading writers and illustrators of books for children and young adults.

McGann’s work weaves fantasy worlds with real issues, allowing young readers to consider often serious social and personal consequences. McGann’s writing and illustrations are a stimulating catalyst for young writers to explore the metaphorical landscape of how to write imaginatively and provokingly about climate change – in a way that will actively engage young readers.

McGann is the author of nine young adult novels. His latest, Rat Runners, was released in 2013.
