Two towns, Tralee and Tralah, compete in an annual St. Patrick's Day decorating contest which Tralah boastfully always wins, but when their hearts are put to the test by a little man with pointed ears, Tralee wins with no effort at all.

I love this tale for it offers the perfect opportunity to discuss generosity and service to ones community. In the story the whole community comes together to paint the town Limerick Lime. They also unite to help the traveling stranger with his problem. There¿s so much selfishness in society today, and every now and then it¿s nice to be reminded of the things that matter most in life, friendship, love, and community. Well, those things matter most to me anyway¿ Curry¿s pastoral scenes are charming, and out of the ordinary for children¿s literature. He paints in acrylics, thus the hues are rich and colorful with lots of depth. Susan Wojciechowski generally known for the Beany series succeeds in writing a noble tale of charity verses greed. She has a pleasing way with words as the text flows along page after page.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
