One Spring day, Lonán the farmer discovers a magical whistle hidden in a hare’s nest. Suspecting that it belongs to the fairy folk who live at the edge of his farm, Lonán decides that the whistle should be returned to its rightful owners. What follows on his journey to the far field are strange and wonderful encounters with Cara the cow, a mischievous hare, shiny singing stones, and a hooley under the hawthorn tree.
