Jimeen can't seem to stay out of trouble - he just can't resist it, whether it's tormenting his sister, Cáit, a night out 'on the Wren', trying to steal lobsters, or scouring the countryside for spies.

A drowned cat, a drunken goose, the whole neighbourhood out searching all night - these are the results of Jimeen's pranks.

Popular for years in the Irish language, this translation means that a whole new audience can join in the fun.

as funny and memorable as ever. The translation has retained all the robust humour of the original.

Reader Reviews

This book is very good. I've read it several times and there is none other like it. It captures the Irish person of the time.
