    An eye opening history lesson for a less than history buff. The text takes you through the rough and trasgic history of the Irish people. The focus of the book is around the potato famine that so greatly affected that people for generations to come. A bit close to home for those like me whom are desindent of those whom came to america to escape the famine in Ireland. The tale althoguht a tragic one is a way to get young readers invovled in history and events that happen across the sea. While not the most cheerful of books it offers the telling of a bitter truth that not all history is a pleasent one. This book would do well in both a literature and history classroom setting eigther opening the doors for a irish literature lesson or a glance into foreign history. It is well worth the read as both informative and easy reading, allowing those not so easily interested in history to get a good sample.

    This book is a great informative story for children to understand what happened in Ireland during the years of 1845-1850. I felt the book gave insight to what the Irish people had to go through and the hardship of those times.
