Ronan Boyle

Ronan Boyle is the youngest and lowliest recruit to the Garda Special Unit of Tir Na Nog, the Irish police force that handles the crimes of leprechauns and other wee folk. Ronan’s parents are in jail, but Ronan is convinced that they were framed by the wee people.

Now, despite his small size, poor eyesight, and social awkwardness, Ronan is determined to learn all he can while in the garda in order to prove his parents’ innocence. In order to show he’s got what it takes, he’ll have to confront a fiery leprechaun, a sinister harpy, and a world full of nefarious creatures of Irish mythology hidden in plain sight.

Fast paced, action packed, and completely hilarious, Ronan Boyle and the Bridge of Riddles is the first book in a new must-read middle-grade series by actor and writer Thomas Lennon that’s perfect for fans of The Land of Stories and Artemis Fowl.
