This is an absolutely adorable story with a great Irish kick to it. The bargain price made it even more exciting.

Okay explanation of a bit of Irish folklore (the Pooka) but the ending is less than satisfying for a young audience.

Love this book around St. Patricks Day ! Great for the elementary classroom. Lots of possibilities for art and writing activities.
This has been a beloved story for me and hundreds of students to whom I have read it.
