When Old Pat and Young Tom head off to a royal harping contest, the greedy, boastful young harpist sabotages Old Pat’s harp. Then Old Pat helps a leprechaun and the little man repays the service with gold and magic.
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.
