The Irish Twins (Paperback)
Lucy Fitch Perkins takes you and your children back to old Ireland and into the lives of two seven year old twins, Michael and Eileen McQueen. The young readers will enjoy the adventures of Michael and Eileen, as they encounter the "Tinkers" (gypsies), their experiences at the fair, and their eventual immigration to the United States. They will also enjoy learning some Irish folk lore from Grannie Malone, the twins, and other characters. The Irish Twins is not only, beautifully illustrated and entertaining story, but also gives a glimpse of the plight of the tenant farmers in Ireland in the late 1800's and early 1900's and the problems they had in dealing with "absentee" landlords.
