Picture Book Tells a Story About Friends, Family, Faith and of Helping Others
He hadn't meant to fall asleep. The grass had looked so soft and he had been so tired, he thought he would lie down for just a few minutes. It was late in the afternoon when he lay down; now the sun was shining and he could hear the sounds of early morning all around him. He must have slept the whole night through. Sitting up, he rubbed his eyes. Now that he was awake, he was hungry and, feeling the chill in the morning air, wished he had his sweater. Memory returned in a flash and with it the feeling of urgency. He had to find his mom and dad.
Dermot O'Malley and the Lost Little Boy written by Patricia A. Richardson tells the story of a lost little boy named Justus Hendrickson. He had walked a very long way searching for his family. Tired, he stopped to rest in a meadow and falling asleep, he woke to find a very little old man in a green suit watching him.
If anyone could help the little boy find his mom and dad, it would be Dermot O'Malley, a leprechaun who had connections - with other leprechauns. The word went out and soon, a whole squad of leprechauns arrived to help search for the family of Justus Hendrickson. Will they find them? Will there be a happy ending for Justus Hendrickson and his family?
Dermot O'Malley and the Lost Little Boy is an entertaining and inspiring children's story about helping others, about friends, about family and about knowing first of all to stop, say a prayer and ask for the very best kind of help.

Born in Pennsylvania and educated in Catholic schools on the East coast, in Hawaii and California, Patricia Richardson has lived in Southern California since a teenager. Widely traveled, she claims the best times are those spent in Ireland, Germany and Sweden, all countries in which she has ancestral roots. An early reader, taught phonetically, it's almost impossible to find her without a book in her hands or close at hand. Mrs. Richardson admits to devouring three to four books a week, all history, her first love. Occasionally there will
be a break for Jane Austen and requests for help with genealogical research always are answered.
