    "This was a charming take on an Irish classic folktale. It's a great way to expose children to different cultural myths. The illustrations were simply beautiful as well. My daughter loved this book."

    "This is a great little children's book, filled with a bit of the Irish sprinkled in. My father in law is from Ireland, and still has an Irish accent, and way of speaking. My daughter loves the fact that the people in the book talk a bit like her grandfather. Besides all of that, it is a terrific, unpredictable story. It is definitely one of my daughter's favorites. "

    "The Children of Lir is a retelling of an old Irish folktale and it does this tale justice. It has beautiful pictures and is written in a way that children (and adults) can easily enjoy. The Children of Lir has something for everyone -- evil queens, fantasy, love, and above all else, children finding their way back home. "

    "Got my daughter this book and she absolutely loves it. Not as much as her cat& the hat books or her winnie the pooh collection; but you can definitely see the wear and tear on the book. Recommended for all ages."

    "I purchased this book for my two boys, and they loved it!! The illustrations are beautiful, and kept my boys engaged. It is a very humorous story, and who would of thought you could get so many laughs from a potato! Our roots are in Ireland, so we enjoyed it all the more, but it would be great to give away as a St. Patrick's gift!"

    "The Magic Tree House series is great for elementary aged children who can handle chapter books by reading themselves or by having the stories read to them, perhaps in installments at bedtimes or for other home schooling or in school story times. My kids loved this series at that age and I like to read them myself as they are engaging and often involve historic events or historic figures to add to the educational aspect for kids and parents. This title is a stellar example as the kids Jack and Annie have an adventure involving an Irish girl who eventually becomes pivotal in Irish history, helping encourage national pride and starting a theater to enrich Irish society and culture.
