Abstract:

Far away in the Irish sea lies the smallest island nation in the world, the Isle of Man, where the cats have no tails and the coat of arms has three legs. Here the quiet places in the glens abound with fairies, or little people or little fellows, as they prefer to be called. In their red caps and their green jackets you can see them riding to the hunt followed by many tiny barking dogs in all colours of the rainbow; that is, if you are in the right spot at the right time and you know the right password!
