Jamie O'Rourke And The PookaBook - 2000
From the creator of the much-loved book Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato, comes another story about the laziest man in all of Ireland, Jamie O'Rourke.This time Jamie's wife has left him alone for a week. All Jamie has to do is clean the dishes and sweep the house. Of course, Jamie's the messiest man in all of Ireland as well as the laziest, but when a magical Pooka comes to do all the housework, he figures he's also the luckiest. But Jamie's luck runs out when he gives the Pooka a warm overcoat as thanks, thus breaking the house-cleaning spell cast on the Pooka. The Pooka runs off, leaving Jamie--and Eileen--with a very messy house indeed!
