He thrilled to the talk of the coming race which his father and crew would try to win from the boats of the other Irish villages nearby. To make things even more exciting, the Ballymoran boat was to be built by his father right outside their cottage. But what was Shaun's part in all this? He wasn't big enough to row or old enough to hammer. How could he find a way to help - especially with those tinker boys to hinder and all? - This unusual modern Irish tale with its beautiful pictures by a recent Caldecott Medal winner gives an insight into another way of life very different from that of American boys and girls but just as much fun." Very light edge wear to boards. Dust jacket is price clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling, light rubbing/soiling, light browning to spine.
