Description

A wonderfully written fantasy set in the west of Ireland which tells of the coming of the Great Queen, the Morrigan, who is bent on bringing destruction to the world. Only Pidge and Bridget can stop her and their task seems impossible as they're constantly trailed by the queen's hounds. But they're aided in their quest by a host of willing helpers - a glorious array of unforgettable characters. The Hounds of the Morrigan is a remarkable book which was ten years in the writing and has resulted in something quite unlike anything written for children before.show more
