All is well and naught is ill in the prince of Ireland's life, until his stepmother decides she wants to steal his throne for her own twin sons. When she places a geis, or spell, on him, the only way the prince can break it is to bring her the three magic stallions that are kept by Sean O'Donal, a ferocious giant. Soon the prince and the giant come face-to-face, only to discover that good deeds done in the past are many times repaid in the future. Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, this whimsical folktale with enchanting illustrations casts its own powerful magic.
