Taibhsí an Locha by Antain Mac Lochlainn

Scéal taibhsiúil faoi Shamhain d’fhoghlaimeoirí fást.a Tar éis dó teacht slán as drochthimpiste cair, téann an fear gnó John Grayling chuig a sheanteach mór faoin tuath chun rudaí a thógáil go réidh. Ach ní fada go dtuigeann sé nach ligfidh an teach agus a rúin dhó é sin a dhéanamh.

SAOL, Deireadh Fómhair 2009, Colm Ó Torna

Tar éis don mhilliúnaí an fear gnó John Grayling teacht slán (ar éigean) as drochthimpiste éiríonn sé as a chuid obire agus filleann ar a sheanteach mór faoin tuath.

Ach ní fada go gcloiseann sé fuaimeanna aisteacha agus radharcanna níos aistí fós, i lár na hoíche agus i lár an lae. Cé hí ‘An Bhean Ghlas’ sa phortráid úd ar an mballa? Agus cé hé ‘An Bráthair Bán”? Agus cén teachtaireacht atá acu dó. Le cabhair óna dheirfiúr, Jackie, agus a cara siúd, Brenda scoláirí beirt, nochtann siad rún scanrúil Theach an Locha. Scéal bleachtaireacht agus scéal taibhsí, tá sé scríofa i stíl bhreá shoiléir shimplí agus tá foclóir ag cúl an leabhair. Leabhar é seo atá dírithe ar fhoghlaimeoirí fásta go príomha ach a mbainfidh déagóir lántaitneamh as chomh maith.
