Read full description of the books:
Many, many (many) stories for kids, especially fairy tales, have had their violence removed or softened. While this is an old, old habit among some, and it makes sense, the fact is that children are bloodthirsty critters and never mind seeing a little fictional blood shed so long as it's shed by the deserving.
Which is what happens here. Tim O'Toole has no luck, and apparently less sense, because the first bit of luck he ever had in his life was seeing the leprechauns and getting the goose that lays the golden eggs from them - and then the fool bragged about it on the way home, and was tricked into going home with a regular goose instead. (Now, really, a regular goose will keep you fed and protect your farm, so that's not such a great loss, but all the same it must be considered a bit of a disappointment.) And when he demands repayment from the leprechauns and gets a magic tablecloth to keep him fed, he makes the same stupid mistake all over again!
Luckily, they're cleverer than he is, and his next gift is a hat. Just a hat. And when poor Tim's greedy neighbors go to steal it... well... let's just say that lots of little men pouring out of a hat and beating you black and blue will teach you a lesson you won't forget in a hurry!
Great story, but if you're put off by a small amount of casual violence please - read before you buy.
