Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Finn McCool is one of the real "giants" of Irish mythology. In this story, he is not very bright, but he wishes to know the "secret of wisdom." An old man tells him to catch a red salmon and eat it and then he will have the wisdom. Finn catches the fish but is unable to sacrifice it. When he releases it, he catches the hook, cutting his finger, and then puts it in his mouth to suck on it. Then "something strange and beautiful" enters his body, the "secret of wisdom." Bunting makes this unfamiliar story accessible to readers. The art beautifully illustrates the green Irish countryside and makes Finn a real gentle giant. A fine introduction to a legend that might be unfamiliar to children.—Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT

From the Back Cover

Finn McCool is the largest giant in all of Ireland. He is a fierce warrior, he's gentle and kind, but he's not smart. When a wise man tells Finn about a magical red salmon who has the wisdom of the world, Finn sets out to catch the fish. And he learns a thing or two about himself in the process. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
