My son loves stories where characters outwit the bad guys, so this was a big hit. Bateman's text makes what could have been a dry, straightforward tale into a suspenseful, fun story. Murphy gives the clever Fiona life and energy. My son and I both loved the depiction of luck as tiny stars.

(For adults, it's probably inescapable to read this as a folktale version of The Great Famine, an alternate reality account where a strong Irishwoman saves the country.)

Awesome Irish Fairy Tale that encourages female independence, resourcefulness, and ingenuity!
