J J Liddy sometimes blames his unreliable temperament on the visit he made to Tir na nOg, the land of eternal youth, when he was 15 years old. It's perhaps not surprising that his children have also turned out to be a little eccentric, especially 11-year-old Jenny. She forgets to go to school, can't bear to wear shoes, and spends entire days roaming the mountainside.

It is up there that she meets the ghost. He is guarding a pile of rocks known as the beacon, and when some archaeologists arrive to excavate it, they run into the strangest kind of obstruction. But it is not people the ghost fears, and when the real enemy finally reveals itself, the future of the entire human race is threatened. Only Aengus Og and his fairy kin can help now. But why should fairies bother themselves with human affairs? Download and start listening now!

    " I liked the book, but the ecological message was a bit preachy and really not germaine to the story. "
