RORY O'MORY by Maurice N. O'Brien


Email this review


I've put this down as a book to read aloud, for it is a fable in verse, with amusing pictures, a nonsense tale of a little fox that wanted to be the biggest, reddest fox in all Ireland, and of the responsibilities that came his direction when he got his wish. His English cousins sent for him to help when they acquired a new Master of the Hunt who really hunted foxes. So Rory went to England and turned tables on the squire with great success. The subject matter will be so unfamiliar to most children, that the fun of the story will be lost unless shared by adults.
