Sinéad and Dara, Michelle's country cousins, come up to 'the big smoke' to visit Michelle and her mum.
The bright lights and fast life of the big city take her cousins by surprise, but Michelle delights in showing off her cosmopolitan ways!
A witty and engaging account of a visit to the weird and wonderful city of Dublin, where Sinéad and Dara struggle to understand the curious local customs. Red Flag 11
'Set in anecdotal chapters, the dialogue between the cousins is bouncy and entertaining, making this a good starter read-alone.'
'This is a pleasant variant of the 'town mouse, country mouse' fable, set in modern Dublin.'
'Michelle in Animals Don't Have Ghosts was declared "really good" by my seven-year-old who loved the story of know-all Michelle and her country cousins, Dara and Sinead, who have a day out in Dublin, taking in the Natural History Museum, St Stephen's Green and a shopping centre with escalators.'
'... a freshness and a sense of humour ... which is very appealing'
