For three consecutive years the American writer Janine Kimmel and Italian artist David Ceccarelli came to stay at John O’Connor’s house  An Tigh Beag at Castlegregory.  The majesty of the landscape surrounding them inspired this enchanting illustrated book.  Owencashla  became the Yawning Rabbit River, Castlegregory the fictional village of  Briarwood, and An Tigh Beag itself the setting for Nub Begley’s Farm.

The heroes of this epic tale are a thieving rabbit with the courage to do great things, a deer who transforms as night falls, a magical coin headed boy, a dapper rat with a heart of gold and a brave boy and girl who know more than you might think. All of them battle curses, demons, monsters, and other strange creatures to bring life and safety to the river they love.
A lovely present for anyone over the age of nine. Come and meet the author and illustrator and get your signed copy.
