Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy Pollock-Gibson
Michael McKeever needs new baseball shoes for the spring season, but his Dad is out of work and down of his luck. Fortunately for the McKeever family, O'Leary the leprechaun lives in their basement. Michael finds the leprechaun counting his beloved gold, and while the leprechaun can't bring himself to share any of it, he is able to surprise Michael one morning with a pair of lucky green baseball shoes. A warm hearted St. Patrick's Day story illustrated with full-page watercolor paintings.

Great book for children. Read to a class of 3rd graders for Guest Reader day and they liked the story and meaning behind it. Good, quick read .
