Comfort Cat Press
Kindle Edition - $.99
In these three original Irish tales for children, readers travel through Ireland from Rosmuck to Ballytobar to Moycullen to Barley Cove as ordinary Irish lads and lasses are touched by the magic of another world.
Liam McLafferty’s Choice
No lad in all of Ireland made worse choices than Liam McLafftery of Rosmuck. So what happens when the queen of the fairy kingdom offers him a chance to choose a reward for his kindness?
Seamus Kenny’s Well
When a cheating stranger comes to the village and an innocent cow ends up in a bottomless well, the fate of the stranger, the lowing cow and Seamus Kenny’s fields hang in the balance.
The Selkie’s Song
In this fresh take on a traditional Irish tale, who will raise the children when selkie mother, Moyrua, married to land-bound Donal, returns to her people in the sea?
Many folktales have seen their way into oblivion - lost to the sands of time. I have always loved a good folktale and when one I have heard before is brought back to life with a different twist, I sometimes love it even more. Alexis O’Neill has managed to make these beautiful tales her own without changing their original intent.

Reading this eBook reminded me of how much I loved the folktale genre as a kid. I think it's interesting how many folktales have common elements, just names and facts that put them in this country or that. Now I want to read more and more folktales! Three stories is the ideal length for this type of book; perfect for a misty Saturday afternoon...
