Celebrate the magical power of storytelling
"If it’s wonders you’ll be after, it won’t be far that you’ll have to go."
The heart of Donal O’Donnell, like his farmhouse door, has been bolted shut since the day his son died. So when he returns from tending his puck goats in the freezing sleet of a winter storm to find three peddlers huddled at his hearth, he is furious with his wife, Sorcha.
But then, one by one, the peddlers begin to tell their tales—tales of marvels and mystique—and slowly Donal O’Donnell and Sorcha begin to experience a wonder greater than they had ever hoped for.
The story of this wonder is told in the interweaving of four traditional Irish tales with illustrations full of magic and mystery.

The stories of three peddlers are told to Donal O'Donnell and his wife one stormy night and begin to heal their hearts, broken by the death of their son.
