P.J. Lynch has been honored with many awards and citations for his illustrations, including the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal which he won twice, first for The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski, and then for When Jessie Came Across the Sea by Amy Hest.
Since childhood he has had images of Finn, the son of Cumhaill, and leader of the Fianna; Conor Mac Nessa, King of Ulster; and Cuchulainn, the great hero, in his head. But only in collaboration with a storyteller as respected as Marie Heaney did he feel ready to commit those images to paper. Mr. Lynch makes his home in Dublin, Ireland.
