9780099417736: Juliet's Story

Juliet loved the folk stories Paddy Old used to tell, and when he died nothing was quite right anymore. She fell out with Kitty Ann, her mother was expecting a baby, and Juliet got as cross as two sticks.

Then Grandmamma takes Juliet on a journey - a long journey, by train and boat and train and boat, so Grandmamma tells stories to while away the time. They are different from Paddy Old's stories, and they all seem to be a little bit about Juliet.

And when Juliet and her Grandmamma finally arrive at journey's end Juliet finds the courage to start a story of her own . . .

Review:

'Follows in a tradition that goes back as far as The Arabian Nights, where a series of tales is told to stave off an unpleasant happening.' (The Irish Times The Irish Times)

'It is a celebration of the Irish art of storytelling.' (Belfast Telegraph Belfast Telegraph The Belfast Telegraph)

'As with all Trevor's books, the attention to detail is painstaking and the word painting is as vivid as though he's dipped his brush in the rainbow.' (Sunday Press)

'It is ... a celebration of the imagination, its power to triumph over grief, transform the world, bring witches to life and sunflowers to bloom in the snow. Trevor has done it all by taking the simplest, and oldest, of devices and manipulating it beautifully.' (Evening Press)

'enchanting and delightful' (The School Librarian The School Librarian)
