Product Details


Solemnly told and infused with Irish folklore, this atmospheric tale feels familiar yet timeless. Watercolors in pastoral shades of green, blue, and brown ground the rather dreamy story in reality. Menacing, ghostlike fairies and roiling, white-capped waves increase the drama. . . A haunting, lyrical, original tale that leans into the magic and mystery of the Emerald Isle.

—Kirkus Reviews

Delicately worked watercolors by Marks (Daring Dozen) capture the dance of land and sea: frothy waves, shrouds of mist, and, with just a hint of menace, the icy, wraith-like fairies themselves. The closeness of the relationship between father and daughter can be read in the tenderly outlined faces of Eily and her Papa. . . Eily’s intrepid rescue gives this story a big dramatic arc, and love for her father warms it.
—Publishers Weekly

Marianne McShane evokes the folklore and superstitions of old Ireland in ‘The Fog Catcher’s Daughter,’ an atmospheric picture book about a girl who braves an encounter with fairies to save the life of her father. . . . . In the verdant Irish setting of Alan Marks’s windblown watercolor paintings, the fairies whirl like evil eddies of smoke.
—The Wall Street Journal
