First in a fun and fantastic series, Ronan Boyle and the Bridge of Riddles is an instant New York Times bestseller set in a world of law-breaking leprechauns from actor and writer Thomas Lennon with illustrations by award-winning creator John Hendrix. Fourteen-year-old Ronan Boyle is the youngest and lowliest recruit to the secret Garda, the Irish police force that handles the misdeeds of numerous magical creatures. Ronan’s parents are in jail for a crime they didn’t commit, and he’s convinced that they were framed by the wee people. So despite his small size, poor eyesight, and social awkwardness, Ronan is determined to learn all he can from the Garda in order to prove his parents’ innocence. To show he’s got what it takes, he’ll have to confront a fiery leprechaun, a sinister harpy, and a whole world of monsters. “Perhaps the finest children’s novel of all time (in the ever-burgeoning leprechaun crime-drama sub-genre).” —”Weird Al” Yankovic“A touching, funny read for smart kids young and old.
