April 2015 - Journey to the World's Edge
A delight for the young at heart…
Journey to the World's Edge
By Harry Michael Bagdasian and Ernest Joselovitz.
This tale is about young Brigid Shawn O'Grady of long-ago County Clare in Ireland. She was born with a deformed foot, and she just wants to be normal. Seeking to protect her from cruelty in the village she is isolated by her parents until, one day, she sets off to ask the help of the legendary Sea Mither. This is a journey of discovery and adventure where she meets challenges, and awesome creatures, and discovers a powerful truth. Steeped in Irish culture and legends, Journey to the World's Edge is about Brigid's exciting and enlightening journey toward self-esteem and courage. Children will learn a powerful lesson and be fascinated by the rollicking tale.
