The famed warrior Finn goes on a quest into Tir n’ Og (pronounced tear-ah-naug), the Celtic land of eternal youth and happiness. At the end of his stay, he persuades an enchanted bagpiper to leave paradise and journey with him back to the world to join the Fianna (military elite of ancient Ireland) as their piper. His enchanted pipes stir the troops and summon their spirits to the task, defending the Celtic realm from any and all enemies. The piper travels with Finn for a time, but grows restless, tells Finn that the Fianna do not need him to play in order to fight and that his ability is needed elsewhere. Finn releases him and for the next 300 years he roams the Celtic lands, his music awakening people to seek out the beauty and grace which lives within them.


Dean Morrissey
Dean Morrissey has been drawing and creating characters since his childhood in Boston. Inspired by Disney matte paintings and comic book heroes early on, he grew to appreciate the works of the masters, such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, Pyle and N.C. Wyeth. Morrissey worked a variety of job until deciding to paint full time in the late 1970’s. He worked as a freelance book cover illustrator for over 15 different publishers in New York and won numerous awards. Morrissey is self taught, and considers the demands of cover illustration to have been his “art school”. In 1991, Morrissey began to paint some images from a story that he was creating. His books include Ship of Dreams Harry N Abrams (1994), The Great Kettles: A Tale of Time Harry N Abrams (1997), The Song of Celestine Little, Brown and Co. (1998), The Christmas Ship HarperCollins (2000), A Christmas Carol Greenwich Workshop Press (2000), The Moon Robber HarperCollins (2001), The Winter King HarperCollins (2002), and The Monster Trap HarperCollins (2004). His awards include The Society of Illustrators Gold Medal for The Great Kettles, The Chesley Award for The Light Ship (2002), and he is a current nominee for this year’s Chesley Award for Anna of the Celts (2003). Morrissey lives with his wife Shan and his son on the South Shore of Massachusetts.
