  Author:   Terri M. Roberts

This is the story of the great Gaelic hero Fionn MacCool and why he sucks his thumb. This traditional Gaelic tale is retold as an action story to read aloud. It introduces children to storytelling and to Gaelic oral tradition, language, culture, and belief systems. The book is suitable for use in schools and community groups.

Tales of Fionn MacCool have been popular across the Gaelic world for more than a thousand years. The Gaels brought Fionn tales from Scotland to Nova Scotia two centuries ago and transmitted them orally from one generation to the next as part of their North American Gaelic culture. Today Fionn tales are an important part of Canadian Gaelic heritage and culture.
