‘This wonderful collection of Dublin children’s games, rhymes, pranks and other forms of folklore was originally published in 1975 and reprinted in 1984 … One of the book’s strengths is its openness to the many forms that childlore takes … [Brady] helps the reader understand the complexity, exuberance and durability of children’s traditions … We are fortunate to have such a well-organized, detailed and delightful study of twentieth-century Dublin childlore', Elizabeth Tucker, Journal of Folklore Research (January 2012).
