King Puck by Michael Garland

This magical story will set Irish eyes a-smiling! The happy Irish farmer Seamus and his pet goat, Finny, seek the chance of a lifetime at the King Puck Festival. And as Seamus and Finny's adventure unfolds, you'll adore finding the fairies hidden in each of the radiant illustrations. Set against the backdrop of Ireland's oldest and most unusual fair, king puck is a jig-reeling, kid-appealing tale of friendship, fun, and fairy magic! Named one of the Top 100 Irish Americans by Irish America magazine, author and illustrator Michael Garland brilliantly captures the lushness of the Irish landscape and the warm-hearted cheer of the Irish spirit.
