Overview

The perfect storybook for boys and girls of the parents to capture the spirit of the Irish or make St. Patrick’s Day special.

Legend has it that if you catch a leprechaun, he’ll grant you a wish. But, be careful! Leprechauns are full of trickery. To catch one, you’ll need to be clever in crafting your trap. Grab some glitter and glue and get prepared for your wily holiday visitors!

On the night before St. Patrick’s Day, leprechauns show up to steal your treasures and then disappear as quickly as they came. However, if you’re careful you might be able to catch one and then he’ll grant you a wish. You’ll have to be sneaky and set just the right trap to trap a leprechaun.

Sue Fliess’s read-aloud text and Emma Randall’s whimsical illustrations will provide much fun for young readers eager to catch their very own leprechaun! But beware: leprechauns may leave you with nothing but a cardboard box and a shoe or two.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

SLJ Review: Vibrant illustrations match the catchy verse, which begs to be part of a St. Patrick’s Day read-aloud. Also notable is that the four children in the story have skin color shades spanning from light to dark. The book concludes with instructions for parents and educators on building a leprechaun trap at home or at school, and a quick primer of leprechaun folklore. VERDICT A fun offering for March that will work well read aloud or independently.–Lindsay Jensen, Nashville Public Library

PreS-Gr 2—As far as holiday mascots go, the tiny elves who visit every March may very well be the most elusive. Leprechauns are known for stealing treasure and wreaking havoc, but the payoff for catching one of these tiny men is great—he'll grant a wish to his captor. On St. Patrick's Day eve, you must gather your supplies, build a trap complete with gold rocks and a rainbow slide, and hope for the best. Readers follow along as four friends learn about leprechauns and construct their best snare to no avail—all they find in their trap is a tiny shoe holding a letter from Liam the Leprechaun.
