Story of Ireland by Stewart Ross

Book Description

Comic, colourful and succinct, with short text-bytes, lots of pictures and jokey captions, this is a brilliant introduction to the story of Ireland. From its pictorial endpaper maps to the panels of 'Irish Icons' ranging from Brian Boru to the Abbey Theatre, it is packed with useful and fascinating information. A story that is often complicated and turbulent is told with sensitivity and clarity, from the first legends right up to the present day. The Story of Ireland is the follow-up to Richard Brassey and Stewart Ross's The Story of Scotland, which won the Saltire Society/TES Award for Educational Publications and the Scottish Arts Council Children's Book Award..

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Following the huge success of The Story of Scotland, which won the Saltire Society/TES Award for Educational Publications and the Scottish Arts Council Children's Book Award, the authors have done the same for the history of Ireland. With a combination of cartoon-style, humorous pictures with funny captions and bite-sized chunks of information, it manages to convey a lot of information in an attractive format. After briefly explaining the formation of the island at the end of the Ice Age, it quickly reaches the influx of Celts in 600BC that formed the basis of Ireland's Gaelic culture. The arrival of St Patrick and the conversion of the people to christianity and subsequent Viking and Norman invasions are also swiftly dealt with. The rest of the story chronicles the complex relationship between Ireland and the English and makes a good job of explaining the existence of the deep religious devisions in Ireland today. The simple language and humour will make this sometimes difficult subject appeal to children. (9+ yrs) (Kirkus UK)
