Overview

A must read for Walt Disney fans. The classic fantasy film, Darby O'Gill and the Little People, was inspired by classic Irish folktales as retold by turn-of-the century author, Hermine Templeton. Here is the first volume of Darby O'Gill, straight from the pages of the 1903 magazine where they originally appeared. All the magic and infectious good-humor of the Disney hit are here in Darby O'Gill--His Misadventures Among the Good People and Fairy Folk of Knocknashegh, Also Known as "Leprechauns." The movie made a star of Sean Connery, the book will put stars in your eyes. <I>The New York Times</I> hailed it as "told in the right spirit--delightful reading", while the <I>Saturday Review of Literature</I> lauded it as--"a happy evening for any reader with a heart for wise nonsense." Relish again Darby's unwilling sojourn among the Good People (fairies and leprechauns, to you); his friendship and feuds with King Brian; his famous battle of wits with the Leprechaun; and his terrifying encounter with the banshee. Plus, discover what Disney left out: How the Little People were expelled from heaven and why they chose Ireland as their home; and not to be missed is the delightful account of Father Cassidy's conversion after the good priest has his own face-to-face with the Good People. No wonder when these tales first appeared they were the Boston Transcript, raved over their "delicate fairy fantasy, rollicking sense of humor, and gay and dashing imagination." If you are of Irish descent, or just love Ireland, or love leprechauns, you owe it to yourself to read this collection of delightful tales.
