Dick King-Smith: Paddy's Pot of Gold Summary

Dick King-Smith: Paddy's Pot of Gold by Dick King-Smith

A beautiful new edition of Dick King-Smith's Paddy's Pot of Gold, from the renowned author of Babe The Sheep-Pig.

Brigid lives in Ireland, she's an only child, and she just so happens to have a hole in one boot on her birthday. Surprise! These are the exact four things needed to see a leprechaun.

Meet Patrick Victorious Wellington Right-Handed O'Reilly - but you can call him Paddy.

Everyone knows that leprechauns have a pot of gold buried somewhere, but Paddy insists that a single shilling is all he has in the world. Is he telling the truth? Or are leprechauns as stingy as Brigid's parents say?

About Dick King-Smith

Dick King-Smith, one of Britain's best-loved children's writers, was born in 1922 in Bitton, a village between Bristol and Bath where his family ran a paper mill. He was educated at Marlborough College, served in the Grenadier Guards during the war and was badly wounded in Italy in 1944. He was by then married to Myrle England, whom he'd met when they were both 14; they were drawn together by their interest in creatures great and small. They were married for 57 years, till Myrle died in 2000. They had two daughters and a son and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Dick lived all his long life close to his birthplace. He worked as a farmer for 20 years and then as a primary school teacher, before the first of his many children's book - The Fox Busters - was published in 1978. In 1992, Dick was voted Children's Author of the Year and in 1995 he won the Children's Book Award for Harriet's Hare. He is also well-known for The Hedgehog, the Sophie books, The Queen's Nose, which became a long-running TV series, and Harry's Mad, also a TV series. His book The Water Horse was adapted into a successful movie in 2007. In 1984, Dick's story The Sheep-Pig won the Guardian Children's Book Award. The much-loved film Babe, made a decade later, was based on this story of an appealing orphan piglet who learns to herd sheep. Dick was awarded the OBE in 2010 and he died aged 88 in 2011.
