Based on a classic Irish folktale, this is the perfect picture book to share on St. Patrick's Day.
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.
Celebrated picture book creators Pamela Duncan Edwards and Henry Cole have imagined a joyful and fanciful tale with a priceless lesson.
