It's themed around ancient Good Friday customs in the Isle of Man and beautifully illustrated by acclaimed Manx artist and illustrator Jay Cover. The book has been gifted to every primary school in the Isle of Man and, though it's not for sale, we do have a small number of copies that you could be in with a chance of winning; head over to Culture Vannin's Facebook page before the end of Friday 15th to take a look!
