Tim O’Toole and his wife, Kathleen, are so poor they have not a penny or a potato between them. Even their cats are too skinny for the mice to chase! When Tim goes out to find a job, he stumbles upon “the wee folk”—a band of leprechauns who give him gifts to make his fortune. That is, if Tim can keep clear of the evil McGoon family. . . . “The telling here has a well-honed, Irish lilt; the illustrations, by a Caldecott winner, are lively, expressive, and well sprinkled with sprightly men in green.”—Kirkus Reviews “This book is a winner.”—Booklist
Gerald McDermott was an award-winning author, illustrator, and filmmaker who is remembered for his unique style of vibrant, visual storytelling. His picture books feature folktales and cultures from all around the world.
