Tim O'Toole and the Wee Folk: An
Irish Tale

by Gerald McDermott

When the evil McGoons trick Tim O'Toole out of his fortune, he teams up with his benefactors, the Little People, to regain his treasure. McDermott has produced a rollicking version of the old European tale, filled with sly Irish humor.

In their review of this book, School Library Journal said "McDermott has produced a rollicking tale, filled with sly Irish humor. Cheerfully vivid illustrations perfectly match the spirit of the story. ... McDermott's language subtly captures the lilt and rhythm of an Irish brogue, making this an effortless read-aloud...almost as good as a trip to the Emerald Isle."
