Like most kids in Ballyyahoo, Gerry gets bored, and since he’s bored, he spends most of his time swinging on the gate. His mother says he should find an interest or a hobby, but Gerry’s just too bored. He’s not the only bored Ballyyahooian.

No wonderLike most kids in Ballyyahoo, Gerry gets bored, and since he’s bored, he spends most of his time swinging on the gate. His mother says he should find an interest or a hobby, but Gerry’s just too bored. He’s not the only bored Ballyyahooian. You see, Ballyyahoo is a tiny little Irish town that’s so far into the middle of nowhere that nobody even knows where it is. No wonder there’s not much to do and nowhere to do it. There’s hardly any crime either, so even Sergeant Sid gets bored, and when Sergeant Sid gets bored, there’s always trouble. He starts making up crimes, like having no lights on a donkey, looking crooked, or picking hazelnuts without a license. Since there’s not a lot else to do, most Ballyyahooians like making things up. That means there’s always lot of juicy rumours and scandals going around. But when Gerry hears the rumour of the Witch of Ballyyahoo, he starts to wonder. Could it really be just a rumour? Or could the rumour be true? Most Ballyyahooinans say that you shouldn’t spoil a good rumour with the truth, but Gerry begins to see some strange goings on in the quiet lanes of Ballyyahoo, and soon he learns that a crime is going to happen. It is not the type of crime that usually happens in Ballyyahoo - nothing to do with donkeys, lights, or hazelnuts. No, it’s a terrifying crime that starts with a big knife, a big burglar, and that might just end in murder. Gerry desperately tries to stop this crime from happening, but he realizes he’s all alone. If anyone ever needed a witch in Ballyyahoo, it was now. But is there really a witch in Ballyyahoo? ...

the witch of ballyyahoo another little book from ballyyahoo Reviews
Set in the fictional Irish village of Ballyyahoo, this is a charming children's story that's just perfect for Halloween. Gerry thinks that living in Ballyyahoo is boring, but that's just about to change. Swinging on a gate and watching the world go by allows you to observe all sorts of goings on, and the furtive behaviour of his friend, Lucy, and the odd old lady, Biddy, soon catch his eye. With his friend, Kevin, Gerry decides to follow them, and the pair soon get swept along in an adventure of magic, witches, and burglars.This book is easy enough for the younger reader, but intriguing enough that you will want to read it too. The characters are fun and engaging, the adventure rips along at a fair old pace, and I particularly loved the character of Gerry's mother, and her sister, Aggie. I can't recommend it highly enough!
