O'Sullivan Stew

Hudson Talbott 1999

A fun Irish yarn (in honor of St. Patrick's Day of course!) about a girl who saves the day. When the village witch has her horse taken by the king (for taxes) no one will help her. Kate O'Sullivan and her brothers come to the rescue but get captured when trying to steal back the horse. Plucky Kate has a fistfull of stories that she amuses the king with. There are fairies and sea serpents and other magical plots.  Kate of course wins the king's affection and sets her family free.
