This is the story of Kathleen trying to prepare for her first holy communion. Her family and friends are all caught up in the excitement of the event. However with two pestiferous baby brothers and a slightly distractable mom, the dress shopping starts to go wrong early on.
Little girls will identify with Kathleen who wants to show Jesus that she is making an effort but is thwarted again and again. It takes a light-hearted look at the pressures that the modern communion can put on families. There is a gentle message about the meaning of communion and a warning against getting carried away with the (admittedly very enjoyable) commercial and superficial aspects.
This audiobook is spoken in real Cork accents by the author, Avril O’Reilly.
