Someone has stolen the witch of Crookhaven's horse, and there will be no peace in the village until it is returned. So bold, brassy Kate O'Sullivan takes matters into her own hands. But instead of saving the day, she manages to land herself--and her family--in trouble with the king. So Kate sets out to save their hides the only way she knows how--with a good story. Filled with imagination, wit, and a healthy helping of good old-fashioned Irish blarney, this is a hilarious tale that will keep readers coming back for more.

About the Author:

Hudson Talbott has written and illustrated more than 20 children’s books, including Newbery Honor winner Show Way (by Jacqueline Woodson), ALA Notable Book and VOYA Honor Book Leonardo’s Horse (by Jean Fritz), and We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story, which was adapted into an animated film by Steven Spielberg. He lives in the Hudson Valley of New York and in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-5-Feisty Kate O'Sullivan may daydream some of the time, but she knows when action is needed. When tax collectors visit her Irish village and steal the witch's red stallion, the girl tries to enlist the help of the townsfolk, who shrug their shoulders and declare that their neighbor isn't one of them. The witch goes "into a snit," all sorts of disasters occur, and food becomes scarce. Kate prods her father and brothers into action and they set off to steal the stallion back. Caught by the king and threatened with hanging, Kate saves each family member by telling a clever story. The horse is returned, and the O'Sullivans are set free, whereupon they go home to celebrate. When the king arrives at Kate's doorstep to declare his love, she says that she might marry him in five years, after she has some of her own adventures. Kate is a lively, take-charge heroine and Talbott's colorful illustrations capture her spirit perfectly, whether her hair is standing on end as she sneezes a mighty "AAAA CHOOO" or her eyes mirror innocent pleasure as she turns down the king's proposal. This is not a simple tale, but the pictures and text work so well together that the events move along with ease. Full of broad and subtle humor, the story will be a read-aloud favorite, but it also has much to offer children who like to pore over detailed illustrations and daydream about other worlds.
