Texan author gathers inspiration for this new picture book after a long-awaited trip to Ireland. The well planned out, lyrical story follows young Maisie around the emerald isle in search for her lost sheep. Cleverly used iconic landmarks in crafty illustrations ooze charisma bringing geographic insight to readers. The passion and love of Irish landscapes really shine throughout the pages. Highly recommended for all ages and a beautiful bedtime tale.
