A children's therapist who is using her experience to reach out to young people through colourful stories, has just launched her latest book.

Katie O’Donoghue is a child and young people’s therapist with a background in Fine Art and Design. She has a master’s degree in Art Psychotherapy and is a PhD in Healthy Psychology.

She excitedly launched 'The Little Otter Who Tried' on Thursday evening in Eason on Main Street.

Katie writes her books to attend to the challenges children face and to support the inner child in us all.

Little Otter is scared to swim on her own. But with tips from her riverside friends, she grows in confidence, and is soon surprised by how far she has travelled all by herself!

"Every child will find something to love in this gorgeous book," Katie, who also brought the stories to life with her own hand painted illustrations, explained.

"It has been a whirlwind of a week, absolutely filled to the brim with memories to last a lifetime. I've been so supported by the community in Kerry. I'd like to say a special thanks to Tanya O'Shea and all the staff in Eason Killarney, who ensured we had a wonderful launch evening. I'm really grateful for everyone's support and I hope any child gifted a copy of the book will find in Little Otter, a kind friend to help them with any challenges they may encounter."

Katie previously wrote and illustrated 'The Little Squirrel Who Worried' which was published by Gill Books in July 2021 which featured on The Late Late Toy Show.

The Little Otter Who Tried is priced at €13.99.
