Billy Button Telegram Boy Sally Nicholls, July 2016 from Barrington Stoke.  

I was shortlisted for the Children's Books Ireland Book of the Year Award 2017 for this book. 

From the Irish Times: "Sheena Dempsey’s delightfully nostalgic and whimsical illustrations, accomplished enhancement of Sally Nicholls' text, and visual interweaving of historical details skilfully conjure the time period, creating a warm and beguiling narrative experience for young readers."

From the Guardian: "This is a little book of infinite, rosy-cheeked charm, in which a stand-in telegram boy plays Cupid to an unlikely couple. With a Milly-Molly-Mandyish feel to its scant text and retro illustrations, it is super-readable fiction of the highest quality."
