The New Policeman, by Kate Thompson

There never seems to be enough time in Kinvara, a town in Ireland and as J.J. soon discovers, time is also a problem in the magical land of Tir na n'Og. The two are connected in many mysterious ways but particularly by traditional Irish music sprinkled throughout the text. A compelling and mysterious fantasy.

Grades 6 and up

Wonderful book. With the music printed at the end of each chapter a teacher could introduce all kinds of cultural ideas. SECOND. By the way, fantastic in audio version so that you can hear the music being played.
