Big Bear's Big Boatby Eve Bunting
Synopses & Reviews
Maeve is unnerved when she and her grandfather find a body in the bog in Ballywhinney,
Ireland. It turns out to be the body of a young girl who lived more than a
thousand years ago. A girl like Maeve, with fair hair, who walked the same fields and
picked the same flowers. When archeologists display the mummy at a museum, Maeve
wonders: Does the girl mind being displayed in a glass case for all to see? Or does she
miss the green meadow where she had lain for so many hundreds of years?
Two picture-book masters sensitively capture the layers of thought and feeling arising
in the face of an awe-inspiring and mysterious discovery.

Terry is half asleep when he hears the wailing, rising and falling like the waves of the sea. He wishes it were a dream, but he knows it isnandrsquo;t. It isnandrsquo;t an owl screeching, either. Or the Flannerysandrsquo; old cat. Could it be the Bansheeandmdash;the ghostly figure of Irish legend who wails outside a house when death is near?
Why would she come here?
In spite of his fears, Terry goes out to confront her. Is it really the Banshee, or . . . something else?
