wonderful book!

I recommend this book highly. There is a song in it that my daughter and I will sing for a long time. We read it twice in one sitting - it is that good. We liked it because we like the song and because we liked the boo hag. We had never heard of her before we read this book. Are there any more stories about the boo hag? my daughter wants to know.
