Most Helpful Customer Reviews
We really enjoyed this book and recommend it to all people, especially the Irish and people who love the mythology of the "Wee Folk"! The faces are wondefully drawn and kids will love the ingenuity of the children in the book. A magical delight people the world over should love!
First-rate illustrations are the best feature of this book. The story is entertaining but can be long for 4 and 5 year-olds. The story faults, in that it employs too many characters with no character development, which adds unnecessary confusion and clutter to the story. There is a little boy (Sean) and girl (Meghan), three very old ladies (the children's aunties), and a leprechaun exchanging dialogue in the same 1 or 2 pages, at different points throughout the book. As a parent reading to a child, who wants to present a different voice for each character so that the child can easliy identify who is speaking in the story, there are too many characters talking, but with no distinguishing personalities to make understanding easier. However, the story is somewhat entertaining despite its flaws.
I loved the illustrations. However, the book seems as if it was written by an illustrator who decided to write, rather than a writer who can also illustrate...too many characters for children so small. It would have been miles better if there was only one Auntie. It seemed to drag on, and I found myself skipping over some of the words in order to get through it. My 4 and 6 year old enjoyed the pictures, but they seemed bored by the story.
