"A top-of-the-morning read-aloud choice for March 17, this tale of quiet determination unfolds with an emphatic quality that is cheerful and fulfilling. . . . Shades of green and touches of yellow spark the careful line work and reflect a rugged Irish countryside against which Brett’s dog and boy romp in a lively and appealing way."

Booklist, ALA

"Supposedly, Jamie is too small to parade to the top of Acorn Hill with the rest of the family on St. Patrick’s Day. Rising early, he dons his mother’s raincoat, his dad’s hat, his brother Sean’s sash and his brother Kevin’s flute. Then he and his dog Nell set out. . . . Detailed, warmly rounded pen-and-ink illustrations with shades of green and yellow complement this satisfying story for the 17th of March."
