About Mary Murphy

Mary Murphy is a Dublin-based author-illustrator of over 40 books; from board books for babies to fiction for children. With an advanced diploma in Visual Communications, Mary harnesses the power of pictures and words to develop both the eyesight and speech of babies and children as they grow. Her first book was written and published in 1997. Her ever-popular debut is all about a young penguin and older penguin who list the things they like to do together. It won the Parenting Magazine Gold Medal. Since then, she has gone on to receive a string of starred reviews and accolades in the USA, UK and Ireland for her work, which has also been adapted for TV. In Children's Books Ireland's 2018 campaign to mark the centenary of women's suffrage in Ireland, Mary was one of twenty 'Bold Girls' celebrated for having made 'an exceptional contribution to the canon of Irish children's literature'.
