The Vanishing Lake, written and illustrated by Irish author Paddy Donnelly, is based on Lake Loughareema which is close to where Paddy grew up.  They say that truth is stranger than fiction and that's certainly true in this case - Lake Loughareema really does vanish!  

A story based on fact but full or imagination, warmth and beautiful illustrations.  It's up to you whether you read the scientific explanation at the end or just believe in the magic!
