This magical story will set Irish eyes a-smiling!

The happy Irish farmer Seamus and his pet goat, Finny, seek the chance of a lifetime at the King Puck Festival. And as Seamus and Finny's adventure unfolds, you'll adore finding the fairies hidden in each of the radiant illustrations. Set against the backdrop of Ireland's oldest and most unusual fair, king puck is a jig-reeling, kid-appealing tale of friendship, fun, and fairy magic!

Named one of the Top 100 Irish Americans by Irish America magazine, author and illustrator Michael Garland brilliantly captures the lushness of the Irish landscape and the warm-hearted cheer of the Irish spirit.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Farmer Seamus and his goat, Finny, live on the most beautiful mountain in Ireland, where each night he reads the stories of Finn MacCool (the only book he has). Life is simple and Seamus is content, but he wishes for someone to talk to. Fortunately, the fairies overhear him, and magically Finny begins to speak. When the two discover a handbill inviting everyone to the King Puck Festival where a lucky goat will be crowned king for one day, they make their way to Killorglin, and, predictably, Finny is chosen. The ending has a nice touch for book lovers: in answer to Finny's wish for more books, a librarian delivers new ones every week. An author's note explains the origin of the story. Garland's trademark illustrations feature a rotund, traditionally dressed Farmer Seamus, a sprightly, wide-eyed goat, and fairies set against authentic Irish landscapes. Children will be drawn in by these lively, colorful pictures, and they will delight in discovering the fairies hidden everywhere. This is a simple, silly story that youngsters will enjoy.— Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI
