Young lovingly chronicles what, in effect, was quite an extraordinary life... Lynch enchanted youngsters the world over with her fantastic tales, drawing on Irish mythology and often subtly dealing with issues such as animals, Travellers, and the plight of the under dog in society. --Irish Examiner.
This is an invaluable book, not least because it is the first biography of a 20th century Irish children's writer, one whose books in their day were as popular abroad as they were at home, and which have become Irish classics. --Irish Independent
