Overview

Written a century ago, Darby O’Gill and the Good People recounts scampish Darby O’Gill’s wild, improbable adventures with fairies, leprechauns, ghosts, a banshee, a headless coachman, and his friend Brian Connors, the irrepressible King of the Fairies. Then there’s Darby’s shrewish wife Bridget, along with their six children and brave Fr. Cassidy, their parish priest.

In one story, Fr. Cassidy accuses the king of being a friend of Satan, provoking a lively debate between the king and the crusty old priest. Ultimately they discover, as all true Irishmen do, that more unites than divides them: “I came yer inemy,” says Fr. Cassidy, “but I’m convarted. I’ll go back yer friend.” You’ll also hear (among other interesting things) the rest of the story of the war in heaven between the good and bad angels and how it brought the fairies to Ireland, where they live in mischief today.

Newly illustrated by Ted Schluenderfritz.

The classic Disney movie was taken from these tales, but it won't spoil the story for you. You'll enjoy it that much more. This book is classic old story telling. Due to the story being written in a strong Irish dialect, it's understood better when read aloud. Your ear will tell you the words and lead you on the story. And since you're reading it aloud, pull your friends and kids over. This is the way stories are supposed to be! Adventures told from the mouths of loved ones. Readers will find themselves speaking in an old Irish accent for hours. And everyone will enjoy the ride! :)

Charming stories of rural Irish life and the supernatural; would have given it more stars, but there are still a lot of typos and digital scan errors that make some words or phrases completely illegible.

I love this story so I was happy to find this book. It does have scan errors as most of these old books do but it is worth reading. It is a great story about Darby O'Gill and the leprechauns. You can also check out the Disney movie of this story Darby O'Gill and the little people.
