Focloiropedia by Fatti and John Burke

There is virtually nothing happening in the charts this week; in fact, the top 4 are all the same as last week, except that Guinness World Records 2018 has swapped places with The Midnight Line by Lee Child. Sales are still doing well – although David Walliams’ Bad Dad is down slightly on last week (and not by much AT ALL), Child and Jeff Kinney’s newest Wimpy Kid book are both seeing increased sales, and it all adds up to an impressive week for book sales in Ireland.

We also have a couple of Irish-themed Christmas ideas for you. At no. 16 in the overall charts we’ve got Neven Maguire’s Perfect Irish Christmas: 100 recipes for all of your Christmas Celebrations. Like anyone ever gets past the turkey! And, with a surprise jump into the Top 5 (after it’s been in and out of the Hardback Non-Fiction charts for the last few weeks), is the Atlas of the Irish Revolution from Cork University Press. Published way back in September, the Atlas looks like a beautiful gift book for history buffs.

Our featured book is another from Fatti and John Burke. For the last two years, they have produced their beautiful and award-winning books Historopedia and Irelandopedia for children; this year, they’ve turned their attention to the Irish language in Foclóiropedia: A Journey through the Irish Language from Arán to Zú. Here’s some more info:

This breathtakingly exciting book discovers the Irish language as you’ve never learned it before! Fatti Burke’s amazing illustrations and her father John’s fabulous teaching bring the language alive with every turn of the page.

A visual introduction to Ireland’s language for young and old, you will learn your first thousand words, discover your culture and enjoy the fabulous quirks and features of your native tongue!

Bringing a contemporary appeal to a classic subject, get ready to fall in love with your language. It’s Irish as you’ve never seen it before!

This is the third book from the bestselling father and daughter duo behind Irelandopedia and Historopedia, which have sold over 100,000 copies.

And now on to the charts, starting with the Top 20:
