The Irish are world masters at talking. The magic behind our silky, colourful and non-stop stories is a little thing called `blarney', or `the gift of the gab'. But what is it, you ask, and how can you get some for yourself? The hilarious A Big Pile of Blarney takes you through the history of Blarney Castle and the legend of the world-famous Blarney Stone not to mention the famous lips that have puckered up to it. By the time you've finished reading, you too will be overflowing with beguiling blarney know-how and mellifluous oratorical magnetism!
