Sráid an Iarla

Úrscéalta lán le mistéir na seansráideanna agus le draíocht na hóige atá sa tsraith 'Sráid an Iarla', agus iad scríofa i nGaeilge bhreá shimplí an Iarthair; feiliúnach do léitheoirí os cionn naoi mbliana d'aois.

Is faoi Mhártan, buachaill aonaránach atá ina chónaí lena Mhama ar Shráid an Iarla, atá na trí leabhar sa tsraith. Buachaill beag fiosrach é Mártan, agus is minic go bhfeiceann sé agus go gcloiseann sé rudaí nach mbaineann dó — rudaí a bhaineann le saol na ndaoine fásta. Is minic freisin é i dtrioblóid mar gheall air seo.

An tÚdar

Cosúil leis an nGruagach féin, is duine an-rúnda an scríbhneoir. I gCathair Chorcaí a chaith Peadar Ó Cualáin a óige, agus is i seansráideanna na cathrach sin atá a chroí i gcónaí. Chomh maith leis na trí leabhar sa tsraith 'Sráid an Iarla' scríobh sé an t-úrscéal fantaisíochta, Bithíunaigh.

Mártan befriends a freckled-faced girl who brings him to see a mysterious blacksmith in his smithy, and introduces him to a beautiful red-haired singer. But what troubles are Red-Haired Woman and her daughter running from? And who is the Blacksmith whose smithy is hidden behind the garage?

As dogs are being stolen from all over town, a big dark-haired man (known to Mártan as the 'Ogre') and a youthful blonde lady come to live in Number 2, Little Gate Street. When a neighbour's dog disappears Mártan becomes even more curious about the new neighbours. But who is the Ogre? And who is stealing the dogs?

On a winter's evening as Mártan is returning home from school he sees a big ram in the middle of town. Following the ram, comes upon the Professor's garden, and hears the sweet sounds of whistle-playing. But whose ram is it? And what brings it to the Professor's garden? And who is the poor musician who is looking for his tin whistle?
