Skulduggery Pleasant - Irish Book of the Decade



Derek Landy's Skulduggery Pleasant has beaten out some of the best selling books worldwide to become the Irish Book of the Decade! Open to all categories, Landy triumphed over such brilliant and noted Irish authors as Colm Toibin, John McGahern, Anne Enright, topping the list of fifty books. Open to all categories, it is fantastic to see the prestegious award won by a book written for young people. I echo Landy's sentiment when he said, "It shows a real respect for our next generation of readers..."
Congratulations to Derek and Skulduggery Pleasant! How incredible!!!
