Item description for Johnny the Pookie by Iain Price...
In the West of Ireland, young Samus Moran finds himself in peril when through a misunderstanding he gets on the wrong side of one of the Pooka - ancient people from Irish mythology. Despite terrifying poor Samus and his family, the Pookie only wants help to return to the Otherworld. Samus agrees, eager to visit Tir na g, the Land of Youth, believing Johnny the Pookie as he calls him, when he says that Samus will easily be able to return home again. But Pookies cannot always be trusted. Once in the Otherworld, the point of return is some distance away and if that wasn't enough cause for concern, Samus then finds himself thrown into an adventure to rid Dragonsrealm of the mighty Ice Giant, Lokil. To make matters worse, the Dark Druid, Wolfspell, also stands in the way, and despite finding he has new abilities in the Otherworld as those from their world had in ours, Samus begins to fear that he may never get home at all. The book is set against the background of rural County Mayo and Celtic mythology. Powerful magic potions mix with a cocktail of bizarre creatures and gallant knights in this fantasy adventure.
