Maggie Midge and the Island of Midgeorka, Paperback Book

Maggie Midge and the Island of Midgeorka Paperback

Edited by Steafan MacRisnidh

Illustrated by Elfreda Crehan

Part of the Cross Over into Gaelic series


In this little book, full of beautiful illustrations, Maggie tells about the island where midges go when their lives are over.

It's a classic piece of ancient midge folklore. The text is written in a novel dual language style, both in English and in Gaelic.

Text bridges link the English with the Gaelic. So, if you want, you can cross over the bridges and read the whole text in Gaelic. And if you're starting out to learn some Gaelic, then you'd no doubt like to know how the Gaelic is pronounced.

There's a free audio download of Maggie reading out the whole text.

Just go to and download the mp3 file.
