Making MillionsWe are delighted to announce Making Millions by Erika McGann as the 2018 Citywide Reading for Children. This exciting adventure story about the Bubble Street Gang is suitable for boys and girls aged 7-9 years.

“I’m so excited and delighted that Making Millions is the 2018 Citywide Read. I live in the heart of the city and I’ve already met and shared stories with a lot of kids through Dublin City Libraries. I’m looking forward to meeting many more and to hearing their stories about secret forts, jumble sales, ghost stories and getting up to (just a little bit of) mischief.” Says Erika.

The campaign is run by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature and Dublin City Council Public Libraries, in partnership with Puffin Books, and runs from January to March 2017.

There will be author visits to many Dublin City Council branch libraries as well as city-centre based events to promote the campaign. The campaign ends on 19th March with a packed day of fun events based on the book, as part of the St Patrick’s Festival’s Big Day Out in Merrion Square.

Copies of the book are available in all Dublin City Libraries as well as in all good bookshops.  The project is funded by Dublin City Council’s Public Library Service and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

The Book

Join Cass and the Bubble Street Gang as they start Making Millions!

Erika McGannThe Author

Making Millions is the second book in the new series for younger readers called Cass and the Bubble Street Gang from Erika McGann. Erika lives in Dublin and spends her time solving mysteries and having brilliant adventures (well, she writes about them anyway). She likes cold weather (because it’s an excuse to drink hot chocolate by the gallon) and cheesy jokes (because cheesy jokes are always funny, even when they’re not funny).

Erika’s books for older readers include The Demon Notebook (winner of the prestigious Waverton Good Read Award), The Broken Spell, The Watching Wood and The Midnight Carnival.
