Synopsis

Long, long ago, Old Pat, a merry-hearted harpist, and his ill-spirited companion, Young Tom, set off for a contest to name the finest harpist in all of Ireland. When Young Tom recognizes that Pat is truly the better musician, he spitefully begins to scheme for his own victory. But suddenly the clever trickery of a mischievous leprechaun intervenes, and Young Tom is faced with the power of leprechaun magic.

Pamela Duncan Edwards and Henry Cole create a joyful and fanciful tale with a priceless lesson about the power of good deeds.
