The Murphy Stories - Hoonraki Moon - Book 1
 
The Murphy Stories - Hoonraki Moon - Book 1 Book 1 recounts how the Children discover Murphy living in a big oak tree at the bottom of their overgrown garden. It doesn't take the children long to steal their way into Murphy's heart. Murphy is only nine inches tall, so has great fun using the children's toys for his own use.
 
Every full moon Murphy has three wishes which he very rarely uses, until he makes the sad mistake of telling the children about them. Every third full moon is called a 'Hoonraki Moon' when all the Leprechauns gather in a secret place in Rakidom to hear three clues from the Riddle Tree, which, if solved, will lead the Leprechauns to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
 
The story tells how the children coerce Murphy into taking them with him to Rakidom and how they solve the three riddles and the adventures they have on the way. The children meet Murphy's friend, Moragan the witch, who features throughout the series.
 
Murphy also has three arch enemies who are always trying to thwart his attempts to reach the end of the rainbow first. fortunately for Murphy, they tend to be a bit dim, so never succeed. Murphy fails to reach the rainbow, yet again. Book one ends with the youngest child ignoring warnings and bringing back an egg from Rakidom.
 
The Series Stories are split into short chapters, making it ideal for reading aloud and encouraging children reading on their own. Suitable for five to eleven years (subject reading age).
