Peter Donnelly

  • 5 stars across 5 books
    Peter Donnelly was born in Dublin, a city with no shortage of pigeons. When he was a boy he shook a president's hand, not this particular president but a real president nevertheless. He would like to shake this president's hand though -- if he ever meets him.


    Peter has one daughter and still lives and works in Dublin. He draws pictures for a living and has won some nice awards. He has recently begun wearing glasses - which he also leaves at home sometimes.


    The President's Glasses was a number one bestseller and shortlisted for an Irish Book Award. Peter is currently working on a new book, The President's Cat.
