Top of the Shelf: The Banshee

The Banshee by Eve Bunting, illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully Bunting produces a tension-filled tale set on a stormy night in Ireland. Young Terry determines to investigate the scary sounds wailing around his house - could it be a Banshee?  McCully's robust illustrations spike the apprehension and her dark-toned watercolors bring appropriate eeriness. A satisfying ending is sure to dispel any troubled fears. Click here to buy The Banshee or click here to read more Top of the Shelf reviews!
