Chapter One

Empty. They found the field empty.

"It must be here somewhere," Dobb insisted.

The leprechauns looked everywhere - behind hedges, under rocks, even in the trees.

All night and into the dawn they searched through Dingle, their lanterns flickering like fireflies in the darkness.

But it did them no good. All of their fairy gold, every last coin and nugget, was gone.

Finn then went home to his mother, who - after a good night's sleep - baked him more loaves of soda bread than even he could eat.

As for the leprechauns, they were heard grumbling at times about how Finn had outwitted them. Yet they were secretly pleased as well. For if the truth be told, they've kept their gold at the end of the rainbow eer since.
