Description

Arthur Mason was an Irish sailor and gold prospector. He learned about the Wee Men from his mother when he was a boy growing up in Ireland. In this first book he tells of the Night of the Big Wind and how the Wee Men recovered their bagpipes from the rascally jackdaw. This was Robert Lawson’s second published book which first brought his detailed and fantastic black and white illustrations to a wide audience.
