The Seven Tales of Trinket by Shelly Moore Thomas

Trinket is eleven years old when her mother sickens and dies, leaving her alone in the world ... or so she believes. 

Her father, James the Bard, had gone out on the road years earlier and never returned. Most claimed he had died. But what if he was alive yet? Trinket is determined to find the truth.

Accompanied by Thomas the Pig Boy, and armed with a lullaby, an old map, and a handful of half-remembered stories, Trinket goes out on the road to find adventure, and stories, and, perhaps, the truth about her father.

Set into seven stories mingling traditional folktales with original characters, this lively tale will appeal to anyone who has not yet outgrown fairy stories.

Recommended for ages 8 to 12...or to adults who still leave a feast out on Samhain night, just in case a pooka should happen by.

The events may not have happened; still, the story is true. --R. Silvern
