AKA Grania or Grainne O'Malley? Well, they're even writing children's books
about her now. I bought it for my daughter. "The Pirate Queen", I believe.
If anyone has kids who might be interested, e-mail me and I'll look for the
book (which means digging through a very messy room) and let you know who
the author, & publisher are.
