(From the publisher):
The copper braid of Shannon O'Shea
Was unbraided one fall on account of the hay
Which had tangled into the plaits of her hair,
But nobody knew what else snarled in there.
It's a big task for the troupe of tiny sprites who start to unbraid the Irish lass's long, long red hair. For in this land, magic abounds, and things are not as they seem. Trying to be helpful, the busy unbraiders unloose all kinds of astonishing things and fantastical beasts- from buttons and thimbles to precious jewels, amazing objects, exotic flora and fauna, and creatures of every stripe. Who knew?
With a lilting rhymed text that rolls of the tongue and Pam Newton's gorgeous artwork brimming with imps, artifacts, and animals, a Celtic catalog of wonders awaits. This book invites children to enter a world where their imaginations can run as wild as Shannon's unruly curls.
