About this product
- DescriptionThanks to the strength of his magic little finger, the giant Cuchulainn has fought all other giants and squashed them flat - all but one: Finn McCool. And when Finn McCool sucks his magic thumb, he can see what is coming next - Cuchulainn! So, being a coward at heart, he asks his brave wife Oona to help him. And in the end, Oona's brains conquer Cuchulainn's brute strength once and for all! Jessica Souhami's retelling of a popular Irish tale brings it bang up to date with contemporary dialogue and colourful collage. A hilarious and beautiful picture book children everywhere are sure to enjoy.
