A hilarious Irish folktale with a terrific female heroine.
"Long ago, there lived a giant called Cuhullin.
My, but he was big and fierce and strong.
And what made him so strong?
He had a magic finger. And believe it or not,
all his strength was in that little finger.
Now Cuhullin had fought all the other giants,
and squashed them flat. Well, all but one,
and that was Finn McCool."
But Finn doesn't want to fight. Finn is SCARED.
When he sucks his magic thumb, Finn can see Cuhullin coming to get him. So he runs straight home to his wife, Oona.
Oona isn't scared, not one bit. She just laughs . . .
Will Cuhullin find Finn McCool and SQUASH HIM FLAT?
Or will Oona save the day?
(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:20:50 -0400)
The very clever Oona saves her husband, the giant Finn McCool, by outwitting Cuhullin, who seeks to prove that he is the strongest giant in the world by beating Finn.
