Tá Daideo le hÁine Ní Ghlinn curtha ar an ngearrliosta do Ghradaim Leabhair Pháistí Éireann (LPE) 2015 a fógraíodh le déanaí.
Insíonn Daideo scéal faoi bhuachaill atá ar a theitheadh óna thuismitheoirí - agus seanduine atá ar a theitheadh óna pháistí. Castar ar a chéile iad ar an traein go Baile Átha Cliath. Éisteann siad le scéalta a cheile. Tuigeann siad a chéile. Cén toradh a bheidh ar an gcairdeas nua seo?
Bhí nuálaíocht ag roinnt leis an bhfoilseachán chomh maith sa mhéid is gurb é an chéad chlosleabhar Gaeilge a soláthríodh saor in aisce i modh digiteach.
