I found this book when I noticed the interesting cover of its sequel, The Last of the High Kings
, on the bookshelf at the library. I’m a sucker for interesting covers. Good thing we had the first one too. This is an interesting story blending music, Irish mythology and the hectic pace of day-to-day life together in a fun storyline. Although I felt the chapters were too short and the bits with the “new policeman” didn’t really add a whole lot to the plot, it was a quick read and I think a lot of children would enjoy its unique plotline.
