The story is fun, wide spread and full of twists and turns AND best of all the main character turns out to be a very adventurous & independent young woman..just the kind of role model I want my girl to be reading about. Two thumbs up from me!
The most violent thing in this book is a mention of a pig and cow being eaten, but it did not even word it that graphically. (They were gone in an instant.) Wonderful, imaginative tales that keep your interest, along with excellent illustrations.
I found the ending a bit abrupt (although most of the tales in this children's book end abruptly, you are immediately led to a new "blarney" tale from the main character's imagination.)
I'm guessing that an imaginative child would find no problem with the abrupt ending what-so-ever.

In the story, Young Kate uses her wits to save her family and her village with an ending I never saw coming -- not your typical 'Fairy Tale Ending' but an excellent one nonetheless especially for our modern times. I fell in love with the illustration's ton of detail that kept me looking at each page long after the reading was over.
My one complaint is that, while the book itself is good sized so you can see the pictures, the paperback edition seems a bit flimsy. If this story is to be loved (and thus read) as much as I think it will then I may have to order another copy or two to last through the years. Perhaps the school binding edition is more sturdy?
Both girls and boys will enjoy this story and I think you grown ups will, too.
