Can’t Lose Cant is back in Stock!


We are very excited to announce that our title Can’t Lose Cant is now back in stock at Kids’ Own! This is a wonderful book filled with charts and illustrations of Cant words with translations in Irish and English. Cant is the old language of Irish Travellers.

Originally published in 2003, as a result of a creative process with Traveller and settled children in County Kildare, Can’t Lose Cant is a valuable resource as a world first book about the Cant language. This title has alway been very popular so we’re very pleased to be able to bring it back in to stock.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to reprint Can’t Lose Cant, on what is its 20th anniversary! We were really excited to reprint this book for the first time in 2021, as it has always been such an important book to Kids’ Own. We’re really happy to be reprinting the book again so soon and ensuring that it can continue to reach new generations of readers.” Ciara Gallagher Kids’ Own Creative Director

We have reprinted this book with the support of West Cork Travellers and Galway Traveller Movement, and would like to extend our thanks to these organisations.
