Ever since Glashka could remember, she had heard music inside her head. The old ones in her village said it was the singing of Narna, the whale....

One day Glashka discovers thousands of whales trapped in an inlet. The narrow route to the sea is rapidly icing over. Every day ice covers more of the open water the whales need to breathe. This story tells of a dramatic rescue. It's a tale of bravery, and faith and music. It's based on an actual event, and Steve's haunting piece for violin and whales, "Whale Trilogy (.mp3) ." For more about this astonishing whale rescue, visit An Author's Interview.

"A truly beautiful story."

The Gift of the Wee Folk takes the reader back two hundred years to the west coast of Ireland. One year apart at All Hallow's Eve, music and tales of irelandSeamus and Edwin lose their way in a storm. Each child takes shelter in the hollow of an ancient tree, never suspecting who might live there.

Traditionally All Hallow's Eve marked the time of the Celtic New Year. On this night, the veil between the worlds was at its thinnest. On this night, anything might happen! This story is part of Steve's program, Music and Tales of Ireland.
