'This is a beautiful book – both from a literary and an artistic point of view. I began reading the stories with my senior class (4th to 6th) following a history unit about ‘Béaloideas’ and have also now used the book as a basis for some art and poetry lessons. Olivia Golden’s illustrations are stunning and really contribute to the enjoyment of the collection.

I look forward to using this book throughout the year as a read aloud activity and would certainly recommend it.'
