    One thought on “Jamie O'Rourke and the Pooka”

    1. This is a story that I think children and adults can definitely enjoy together. The story is enjoyable and I couldn't help picking up a fake Irish accent to accompany the story. The way it's written you almost can't avoid it!The story is about the lazy Jamie O'Rourke while his loving, caring, housekeeping wife is away. She leaves him with very simple instructions on how to keep the house while she's gone without leaving him terribly much work to do. He figures he's got it covered, and she's off. [...]

    2. I'm interested in seeing how kids perceive drinking in books. I don't seem to recall drinking/getting drunk ever registering positively or negatively in my brain when I encountered it in books I read, even when the Redwall mice drank heavily. But I don't know if that's because I never saw my parents drink other than a very occasional glass of wine until I was an adult (except my dad's Christmas Eve Grand Marnier).That said, whenever a book refers to drinking or alcohol, I notice some of my stude [...]

    3. If you have any fondness for the movie Harvey, this book is likely to induce feelings of outrage.Jamie O'Rourke, "the laziest man in all of Ireland," encounters a pooka when his wife travels to see her sister. Unlike the lovable rabbit of the James Stewart film, this pooka seems to be a cross between a rabbit and a donkey, with something vaguely demonic about the eyes. The pictures of the pooka himself might be off-putting to children-- they certainly were to me.I would be interested to discuss [...]

    4. Jamie O'Rourke, if you'll remember, is the laziest man in all of Ireland. Well, one time, his wife needs to go away for a week, and ole Jamie is left to fend for himself. And, so it happens that his equally lazy, no-good friends come over to celebrate EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. You can imagine the state of the house! But, every night after Jamie goes to bed, the Pooka - looks like a donkey, stands like a man - comes, and cleans up the mess. Jamie should probably reward hims for his service, don't you t [...]

    5. When Jamie O'Rourke's wife, Eileen, goes to her sisters for a week, Jamie plans nothing more than sleeping and eating--so as not to have to do any more than necessary. When Jamie's cronies show up with a jug of cider, he and his pals have a grand old time eating, drinking and making a fine mess. That night, to Jamie's wonderment, a pooka enters the cottage and cleans it from top to bottom. With the pooka returning each night, Jamie and his pals get messier and messier till one night, Jamie pluck [...]

    6. Jamie O'Rourke and the Pooka by Tomie dePaola tells the tale of the laziest and messiest man in Ireland who parties with his friends while his wife is away. A mischevious, magical pooka arrives to clean Jamie's house every night. Will Jamie's luck hold out until his wife comes home? DePaola's illustrations match this folktale well, emphasizing the humor. I expecially enjoyed the cat and dog who enjoyed sleeping when Jamie did, eating when the partying friends came over, and frowned when Jamie's [...]

    7. Jamie's wife leaves to visit her sister, but Jamie is lazy and the house gets messy. So a pooka (a creature that looks like a donkey) comes at night and cleans up. Finally, in thanks Jamie gives the pooka what he wants--a coat. But then the pooka says he doesn't have to clean up anymore--the "curse" was only on him until somebody rewarded him. So the house is messy again when his wife comes home.The ending was cute, I guess, but not a great lesson to teach kids! (That you shouldn't reward somebo [...]

    8. I really think that this might be the best of Tomie dePaola's picture books that I've ever read. The plot is tighter than usual and had me wondering what was going to happen next as Jamie O'Rourke, the "laziest man in Ireland", partied with his friends every night while his wife was away, only to see a magic Pooka creature enter his house each night while Jamie was in bed and clean up the entire mess. This is a very well thought-out story, written with a light touch while still plainly showing t [...]

    9. So my daughter thought the woman in the story was the man's mother rather than his wife, probably because he appeared incapable of cooking for himself or cleaning up anything, and, as far as my daughter knows, grownups do that for themselves. The feel to this one is a bit random, for lack of a better descriptor. It seemed to be going somewhere in terms of a moral, took a detour, and then just ended. A lazy man who won't clean up after himself is lucky enough to have a pooka do it for him, and wh [...]

    10. Jamie O'Rourke and the Pooka (Unabridged) Author: Tomie DePaola Date:01-JAN-2008 Narrator:Jennifer Van Dyck Provider:Penguin Group USA and Audible Running Time:10 min 37 s When Jamie O'Rourke's wife leaves him alone for a week, it's up to Jamie to do the housework. But Jamie isn't just the laziest man in Ireland, he's also the messiest! When a magical pooka arrives unexpectedly and starts to do the dishes and sweep the house, Jamie thinks that maybe he's the luckiest man in Ireland as well. But [...]

    11. Frank was a bit fascinated with the pooka. Overall, though, I'd say this is not a great book for children. I normally love the Tomie dePaola books (especially the Strega Nona books), but this one was not as endearing. It's about a man who likes to drink with his buddies while his wife is away. He's totally lazy, and that might be okay if he learned his lesson or something, but he is lazy to the very end. He does one nice thing in the story, and he regrets it. It just didn't seem to be a good mor [...]

    12. The cover of this book makes it look a tad bit scary, but it isn't at all. I was expecting Jamie to learn something by the end of the tale, but the moral flew right over his head. I also felt a little bad for his wife for having to put up with him. I'd probably only recommend if you were already a fan of Tomie dePaola.*Taken from my book reviews blog: reviewsatmse/2009

    13. Today was Tomie dePaola today at the Mission Houses Museum in Honolulu. We read some of his stories, did a craft and talked about the olden times and how they are depicted in his stories. This was an extra story we read after the event was over. It's an odd little tale, starring the same Jamie O'Rourke from Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato. We thought it was a funny story, but very strange. Such a great time, reading so many of Mr. dePaola's books.

    14. Got to break out my Irish accent while reading this book to the boys. It's about a lazy man whose wife leaves for a week with strict instructions to keep the house clean. He, of course, makes a huge mess every day with his mates, but at night a strange creature comes to clean up after him. Illustrations are fun.

    15. Normally I like Tomie dePaola's work but this one didn't feel quite right. Plus a character is rewarded for bad behavior and disciplined for good behavior. I didn't go for it. I did like the Pooka and the blurb about pookas at the back.

    16. I read this to my students close to St. Patrick's Day with an Irish accent, which they loved! I love Tomie dePaolo. Not only is he an amazing artist, but he also writes great stories! They always teach a great lesson to the children. This story teaches children the importance of working hard and never sitting back while someone else does the work.

    17. Jamie O'Rourke is the laziest man in Ireland, and when his wife goes away for a week to visit her sister, he manages to have a raucous party every night. A strange creature, called a pooka, cleans up after him every night. In gratitude, Jamie gives him a warm coat. What happens next doesn't please Jamie's wife at all when she returns!

    18. In this delightful story, Jamie O'Rourke's wife leaves for a week. This mean that Jamie will have to clean up his own mess. A pooka comes along and cleans Jamie's mess but doesn't clean on the last day before his wife comes home. I would use this story when explaining the importance of being responsible.

    19. Jamie O'Rourke is a lazy man who lives in Ireland. His wife was away for about a week which left him home alone to clean up after himself. The Pooka is what saved Jamie O'Rourke. The Pooka picked up and cleaned after Jamie O'Rourke while his wife was away.

    20. Jamie is the laziest man in Ireland. When his wife goes out of town she tell him not to mess up the house. Of course that's the first thing he and his friends do. Luckily the Pooka comes to clean. Based on Irish folktales this version captures the fun as the Pooka turns the tables on Jamie.

    21. My choice for read aloud for St. Patrick's Day. Even if you can't do an Irish accent, kids can relate to Jamie O'Rourke and his laziness. Classic trickster tale, recommended for grades 1-3. Probably need to do brief background on pooka prior to reading.

    22. It is good story, but it feels a little tired when looked at with modern eyes. Just do the damn dishes, dude.

    23. Read this one with my Pooka and very much enjoyed the tone of TdiP's writing - an Irish lilt energizes this silly story.

    24. My 4th graders are enjoying this as a read-aloud. They're been debating the "moral" of the story on their own.

    25. I read a whole bunch of kids books to boost my book number for the year, but I mainly read this because I have a long standing obsession with Harvey.
