Christmas Eve morning arrives and the poor plumber’s anguish of not being able to provide presents to his family breaks his heart. His friend, Tupo Hoopoe feels the plumber’s pain and seeks advice from Oracle Owl. An unlikely suggestion bewilders Tupo Hoopoe, but knowing Oracle Owl is wise beyond compare he travels to “the centre of the wood.” What Tupo Hoopoe witnesses there is beyond comprehension. Astonished by the arrival of three “little people,” an elf, a fairy, and a leprechaun at the broken and hidden wishing well, an idea like non-other comes to mind.
What can three little people and wishing well have to do with helping the poor plumber? Why empathy for another’s plight. This unlikely grouping of a plumber, an elf, a fairy, and a leprechaun sets the pace for a heartwarming tale of compassion and honesty.
Liam Maher’s expert knack of the written word brings the world of fairy tales to life in a magical Christmas story to be enjoyed throughout the year.
Gin May’s alluring illustrations captures the magic beautifully.
