GR 4. . . . Milligan has taken a traditional Irish tale and synthesized many versions into a cohesive and delightful whole. His poetic prose demands to be read aloud with a lilt and a brogue, and comely turns of phrase (“Then all was well and naught was ill . . .”) beg readers to join in. McDaniel’s evocative illustrations, created with Russian watercolor with graphite, add charm and dimension to the book. The mood is enhanced by foreboding skies in masterly paintings. A worthy addition to any folklore collection.
