This story has been adapted from ‘The Bee, the Harp, the Mouse and the Bum-Clock’ (Donegal Fairy Stories, Sedmas McManus, Doubleday 1990). It contains strong echoes of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk,’ and of Grimm’s ‘Simpleton and the Golden Goose’ (in which a king’s daughter could not laugh). The kingdom, the castle and the magic harp give a medieval flavour to this cheerful Irish story. Set in West Ireland in the 15th century.
Gold level titles introduce children to more complex sentences with an average length of 10 words and help to develop reading strategies such as breaking long words down into syllables.
Available for Levels 15–24, PM Traditional Tales and Plays retell classic tales in a simplified language and form that children can understand. Teachers use the tales in guided reading sessions and children can later read them with confidence and understanding. Parts are colour-coded for easy recognition.
