K-Gr. 2. The neighboring towns of Tralee and Tralah compete each year in a St. Patrick's Day decorating contest, and each year Tralee loses. This year, however, six-year-old Tralee resident Fiona Riley has an idea that may turn the town's luck around--she suggests that they paint the entire town green. As the two towns busy themselves with contest preparations, a stranger comes to Tralah, a small, pointy-eared man on a white horse who needs help getting his cows unstuck from the mud. The townspeople of Tralah can't be bothered to help him; they are cutting shamrocks out of cardboard to glue on all their trees. But the good folks of Tralee, led again by Fiona, agree to hang up their paintbrushes and help the cows. Despite their sacrifice, they win the contest; the stranger paints the town green while they are sleeping. Wojciechowski's charming tale is beautifully complemented by Curry's stylized depictions of green rolling hills and thatched-roof houses. Both text and art convey a sturdy feeling about community and charity, brushed with touch of whimsy. Karin Snelson

“Wojciechowski tells a fine story that reads well aloud; Curry’s drolly mock-primitive paintings practically glow with color and bristle with texture. Practice your brogue, and sure and begorra, start working some story-hour magic.”—The Horn Book
