Can you imagine? A story with no "baddies?" A story where the tension comes from a competition between two men that does not involve violence? If that doesn't surprise you enough, they both display good sportsmanship throughout! I also liked that dance was the topic discussed, rather than something stereotypical like car racing. Of course real men can dance. Of course real men can be good at it. There are a few really good points dealt with in this story, but there is nothing preachy about it.

Great Kids picture book

Our family really enjoyed this book. Darling illustrations, great story and gives you a little history of Irish dance in rural Ireland.

A fantastic children's picturebook inspired by a true event

Written by Anna Marlis Burgard and illustrated by Leighanne Dees with aid from the watchful eyes of Irish dance and folklore experts, Flying Feet: A Story Of Irish Dance is a fantastic children's picturebook inspired by a true event - a singularly memorable dance championship that took place when two master dancers tested their talents to determine who was worthy to become the dance instructor of Ballyconneely. A two-part unfolding page reveals the climactic moment when one of the contestants is so entranced in the passion of the moment he appears to take to the skies! The exuberant color illustrations emphasize a celebration and appreciation of Irish dance and cultural heritage. An afterword at the end offers some educational notes about the history of Irish dance.

Highly Recommended

A brilliant book for the wee ones! The wonderful text and rich illustrations reveal a tale of a dance competition in the west of Ireland that inspires and enlightens.
