A must read for every 8-10 year old!

"The King of Ireland's Son" is like the fairytale of all fairytales. It's perfect for second grade when children graduate from fairytales to fables.

A great car book

A grand storyteller for a grand story. A bit too gruesome at times for my children, but I enjoyed it. The language was beautiful and the narrator masterful.
