Míp Takeover: Draw along with Paddy Donnelly

Use this image to help you draw the brave robot Míp.

Míp is an Irish language children’s story written by Máire Zeph and illustrated by Paddy Donnelly.

The NASA robot, Opportunity, inspired Máire to create this beautiful and funny story of plucky Míp; the little robot that bravely goes where no other Irish-speaking robot has gone before!

Míp is now available in good bookshops nationwide!
