  • 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 sure to make his fortune. That is if Tim can keep clear of the evil McGoon family...
  • This is a very funny tale about poor Tim O’Toole, ostracized by the townspeople for his misfortune. One day he comes across a group of Little People and demands some of their treasure. The evil McGoons in turn rob Tim of his fortune, until he utilizes the help of ten tiny men with clubs to retrieve the goods. This whimsical story is full of Irish humor, making it an enjoyable St. Patty’s Day read for kids.
