Publisher's Summary

If the name seems familiar, these tales about Darby O'Gill and his encounter with the fairies were adapted for a Disney movie, Darby O'Gill and the Little People. They tell the story of an Irishman whose cow is captured by the fairies - or "good people". In his determination to recover his property, Darby finds himself in the center of their home, the mountain Sleive-na-mon. Not wishing to remain a captive forever despite the cordial hospitality of his hosts, he escapes through a clever ruse and earns the admiration and friendship of their King Brian Connors. Now Darby O'Gill is a local hero and his adventures continue as he encounters leprechauns, ghosts and banshees under the skeptical eye of his wife Bridget and the local priest.
Includes: "Darby O'Gill and the Good People"; "Darby O'Gill and the Leprechaun"; "The Conversion of Father Cassidy"; "How the Fairies Came to Ireland"; "The Adventures of King Brian Connors"; "The Banshee's Comb".

Great Listen!!!

This author and narrator were new to me. I loved the story and thought the narrator did a fantastic performance. I remember hearing some bits of Darby O'Gill growing up and this book was a reminiscent listen of stories my grandmother told me. Very enjoyable and suitable for all ages. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and or publisher.
