Scene Index

This is a perfect longer picture book for a holiday family to share. And this re-released classic gains new warmth with illustrations by Max Grafe. The story begins as the Hegartys take in a babe left at their door, knowing their Irish neighbors won't care for a deserted "tinker's child." As the child grows into the beautiful, gentle Oona, their fears are realized. No one who will marry or provide her a home. After a life of helping the young, the old, the sick, and the weak, caring Oona is cast out on a cold winter's night. Magical beings provide her with a cabin, which appears when Oona takes in others who are in need. The Irish voice is strong, but readable. 2005, Candlewick, Ages 7 to 10.
