The Lovereading4Kids comment
Siobhan Parkinson is one of the most highly acclaimed children’s writers in Ireland with numerous awards to her name. A lyrical narrative and a very real and appealing story are the hallmark of her novels and certainly Kate is no exception to that. In this sweeping saga there’s also a terrific sense of time and place to 1930s Dublin so that you feel you’re there alongside the lovely Kate.
Kate by Siobhan Parkinson
When Kate goes to her very first Irish dancing lesson she is smitten: It's like flying, she decides. It's the best thing she's ever done. But, coming from a poor family in Dublin's Liberties in the 1930s, how can Kate continue with her dancing? How could she ever manage to buy a fancy dancing costume?
