Praise For Ballywhinney Girl

"There is drama from the first page of this moving picture book."--Booklist

"The tender, gently elegiac rone renders this far more than a picture of how such finds happen."--Horn Book

"An evocative story in verse."--School Library Journal

"Maeve's voice and the natural flow of dialogue make this a pleasure to read aloud, and McCully's watercolor scenes capture a placid landscape and cozy home suddenly jolted from the quotidian into the extraordinary."--Bulletin, starred review
