Have you been hoping for a fun way to remember him that really speaks to your heart?
A year in the making, and with many Finn and Fungie fans anxiously waiting, these new books about Finn of Carlingford Lough
and Fungie of Dingle Bay, are NOW AVAILABLE and offer
fanciful tales of where Finn may have come from
and where Fungie may have gone and why.
Breaking News! "Ireland’s beloved missing dolphin, Fungie, spotted outside Sydney Opera House?"
That’s the creative idea storyteller Lori Henninger Smith suggests in her new book, 'Finn’s Friend Fungie'. His disappearance affected people everywhere and was all over social media and news agencies around the world! His loss left a void and Lori Henniger Smith wanted to give Fungie a happy ending to his story and hopes her book about Ireland's most beloved dolphin will leave everyone with a smile when remembering him.
We're here to help you have fun and learn more about things that are important to you and inspire you just as Finn inspires us everyday and how Fungie inspired the world and was inspired in his book....he learned:
" You can learn so much by expanding your universe...
You just have to be brave
enough to want it first."
We wanted our books to be...
The first thing you'll notice after how beautiful these books are, is that they have their very own website dedicated to
all fun things about Finn and Fungie, books and more!
Finn and Fungie wanted to find a way to entertain, educate and
inspire you all in one place and they promise to make it so much fun!
They have been working hard to develop fun stuff to learn
and do here and they made it all for you! Plus they will review other books for you and tell you about ones they think you may enjoy!
From watching videos of the real Finn swimming in Carlingford Lough to
a bunch of cool videos of Fungie jumping over boats and so much more!
You'll find coloring sheets, and worksheets to learn about dolphins, castles and geography and all kinds of important things!
We will always be adding to this site to make it fun,
engaging, entertaining and inspiring for you!
In addition to enjoying reading the books
yourself, they will also read themselves to you!
Just scan the code at the beginning of the book and you will hear the amazing, animated voice of Orla Travers, of the Irish Folk Band Sillk,
as she narrates the books just for you!
Plus all of our gorgeous illustrations are done by the award winning, amazing Italian artist, Alice Pescarin! She created these beautiful designs to be true to
life as a lot of them are based on Lori's personal photographs she
took of the real Carlingford area while she lived there. She wasn't able to make it to Fungie's hometown because of the pandemic, but Alice had it covered and created beautiful images of Dingle, as well!
(Yes, she saw a mermaid! Well. No, not really.. but wouldn't that be fun!) So, if you live in those areas, you will be able to recognize some locations......
And if you don't, maybe you'll be
inspired to expand YOUR universe
is with every purchase, you are helping save
Finn and Fungies' friends from captivity.
Our Partner - Marine Connection
A percentage of all sales will be donated to UK charity Marine Connection to support their work to help whales and dolphins remain safe and free in the wild like Finn and Fungie, and support the establishment of seaside sanctuaries, where dolphins and whales who have been held in captivity can be retired to live out the remainder of their natural lives in more natural conditions, in the sea – where they should be.
