Recommended to Cathy by: JMS

A sweet little story about the kids helping a girl in 1862's Galway discover her inspiration. She grows up to become Lady Agusta Gregory, a playwrite and poet most famous for collecting many traditional Irish stories and teaching them to the world. Those of us who still read many stories about the Shee (Sidhe) owe her a debt of gratitude. It's fun to imagine all of the times that "my" little guy will read about fairies and elves in the future and know that this was his first introduction.
