The Kapheus Series of Children’s Books are based on Irish mythology and are epic fantasy adventure stories for children aged 7+ years old.


Marguerite Tonery is a dynamic and creative storyteller and author of the Kapheus series of children’s books

Thank you for coming to my website. My name is Marguerite Tonery and I am a children’s author dedicated to providing a platform on which Irish mythology and heritage come alive to a modern audience.

My goal is to provide a fantasy adventure series steeped in Irish myths and legends, culture and language, to children all over the world.  I want to bring stories of Ireland and what it means to be Irish to life with a vibrant and modern day feel to them.

The Kapheus series came to life when Kapheus Earth hit the bookshops at Christmas 2014.  It was the combination of writer, illustrator, designer and bookshop managers that gave this book series life.  David T. Wenzel, the illustrator of The Hobbit, illustrated the front cover of Kapheus Earth, and then Kapheus Air (Christmas 2015) and Kapheus Water (Christmas 2016).

The Kapheus series has been positively reviews in newspapers, online magazines and blogs and on several radio stations in Ireland.  Kapheus Air made it to the exclusvie Late Late Toy Show bookshelf 2016.
