What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

In this classic Irish legend, two harpists – merry-hearted Old Pat and ill-spirited Young Tom – set off for a contest to name the finest harpist in all of Ireland. When Young Tom realizes that Old Pat is truly the better musician, he schemes to be the winner – but he doesn′t reckon with the clever trickery of a mischievous little leprechaun. Noted picture book creators Pamela Duncan Edwards and Henry Cole have imagined a joyful and fanciful tale with a priceless lesson.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.75 / 7.0

With messages about giving freely of yourself and your talents, and putting others first, this is an enjoyable, folksy, and slightly moralizing tale set in Ireland. With it’s little bit of Leprechaun intervention, this is a fun read for St. Patrick’s Day.
