“The well-paced and satisfying story focuses on Mary McLean, a girl of nine or so, who dreams of riding in New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day parade. . . Young readers and listeners will admire Mary’s vision and determination and will find, as a bonus, that they have been pleasantly introduced to an important era in our history.” School Library Journal
American Bookseller Pick of the List
Scholastic asked me to write a story about St. Patrick’s Day. I combined my interests in history, immigration, and New York City to create this tale. It represented the first of the several books I have now written on these subjects.
