Description
Market Day...is the best day of the month, if you ask Tess. There are pigs, chickens, and sheep to see, gob stoppers and cherry lips to eat, a lace-stealing goat to watch, and more. Baba-Ali is swallowing the swords, Nuts, the organ grinder's monkey, is up to mischief, and Madame Savanna will predict the future--for only half a penny! Market Day is wonderful, but is it long enough?

Inspired by memories of her childhood, Eve Bunting's text conveys all the charm of a very big day in a small Irish village. Holly Berry's joyous illustrations are the perfect complement.Thursday is market day in Tess' small village, and the excitement begins when Father gives her a Market day penny to spend. Together with her best friend Wee Boy, Tess explores the wondrous rollicking grounds. There are pigs, chickens, and sheep to see, gob stoppers and cherry lips to eat, an amazing sword-swallower to watch, and much more. Eve Bunting and Holly Berry have created a boisterous, exuberant tribute to an Irish marketplace: a blaze of colors and sights that will awaken all five senses. 'A Celtic charmer.' --Publishers Weekly
