Publisher Description

From Ireland: a mystical and beautiful isle of the north eastern Atlantic Ocean renowned for its mighty storytellers comes a collection of ten original long stories for children aged 8-12 their parents, grandparents, and their teachers. These are imaginary stories told by an imaginary schoolteacher to imaginary students in an imaginary Irish countryside primary school. Principal Declan McGrath is highly respected by parents and greatly loved by his students not alone for the way he admirably teaches them but also for the marvellous lively-paced contemporary narratives he shares with them. In his voice is found a lovely natural rhythm and rhyme that is pure music to the ears of his students. He has twenty-nine students in his classroom. In 4th class there is Amy, Brian, Ciara, Cormac, Craig, Heather, Laura, Martin, and Patrick; in 5th Anthony, Aoife, Ciaran, David, Gerard, Jennie, Julia, Mary, Natalia, Niamh, Sean, and Thomas, and in 6th Colin, Emily, Finbarr, Hugh, Natasha, Owen, Sophie, and Tara. He uses storytelling very effectively to refine his awareness of the wellbeing of his students. Occasionally, they will say out things during a storytelling session that they would not say otherwise. Although the stories have a local Irish setting or bearing they are not parochial; far from it for they aspire to and deal with universal themes and concerns in a way that a reader in any part of the world will be able to relate to and enjoy. The world is ripe for the fresh voice and personal style found in these richly multi-layered story lines; stories which parents and teachers alike will find most appealing and indeed quite useful for their own storytelling times. Richard Mc Sweeney of Ireland is a conscientious gatekeeper of his own creativity. This is the twelfth book he has allowed to go dwell in the greater worlds of the present and the future. {Cover artwork: ‘Two Children on a Windswept Hill’ Jessie Willcox Smith (1863-1935)}
