Award winning presenter and author Anthony Garvey will launch his new children’s book today (Friday Dec 7th )at 11am , at Blennerville National School. Aimed at 8-12 year olds, the Gravespeakers’ series tells the stories of six children who discover on their 12th birthday they have a special gift – they can communicate with the dead!
“Parents love the books because they’re creepy without being scary and because they encourage their children to read more,” author Anthony Garvey said. “I have done book readings and creative writing workshops in over 40 primary schools in Ireland and the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive.”
‘Gravespeakers: Callum’ is the fifth in the six-book series. It tells the story of Callum Houston, a confident and popular 12-year-old. His challenge is to lead Blennerville National School to victory in the debating finals. But by the time he finds out what the challenge is, his team has already lost the debate! Callum must use his newly-discovered powers of interdimensional travel to go back in time and try to secure the victory he needs.
“Callum won my competition last year to be the star of the book,” said Garvey. “His prize involved him in every element of the writing process and he helped to shape the story as it grew from a blank sheet of paper to a finished book.”
Signed copies of the book will be available for €10 on the day or by contacting Anthony on 087 79 79 2 79 or The book is also available as an ebook on Kindle and can be bought on Amazon.

Other books in the series include Gravespeakers:Maria, Gravespeakers:Ruth, Gravespeakers:Crispin and Gravespeakers:Jack.
