This book is The Third In The “Twins” Series. Larry and Eileen The Irish twins live in a very poor village in Ireland, but they don't seem to mind.

This book talks about school life, the culture in Ireland in the early 1900’s, and several times different characters narrate Irish folktales to the children. Illustrated.
