ISBN 0590448226 ¿ I really, really wanted to like this book, if only because the BSK series is popular with kids and anything that makes them want to read has to be worth looking into. Unfortunately, it¿s not that good. It¿s St Patrick¿s Day in Bailey City and Eddie is enjoying pinching everyone not wearing green. He also enjoys tripping people and otherwise getting up to mischief, even in Mrs. Jeepers¿ class. Mrs. Jeeper is from Transylvania and if that doesn¿t make her unusual enough, she¿s got a burning, irrational-seeming hatred of leprechauns. When time for gym class rolls around, the kids meet a visitor from Ireland, Mr. O¿Grady, who¿s going to teach them Irish dances. The kids quickly become suspicious of the little man, certain he¿s a leprechaun. Of course, they¿re also certain that Mrs. Jeepers is a vampire, so they must just be crazy¿ right? Wrong! The story is fun and lighthearted, despite the looming possibility of a leprechaun-vampire war in the hallway. The book, however, is really too short to be more than slightly amusing. By the time the tale picks up, it¿s already heading into the big finale which was itself a bit of a letdown. I give it three stars, consider it average, but end with a high note: I¿ll be reading more BSK books whenever they come my way ¿ they¿re not bad, it¿s just this one isn¿t all that great.

This book is a must read type of book. It's cool how the unthinkable happens in one school. It's a cool fiction book. It's a story about a leprechaun who plays basketball.

There was this teacher who's name was Mrs. Jeepers. She was mean and acted like a vampire. One kid got hit by hit by thousands of basketballs by a leprachaun with magical power. This is a five star book because it is a cool book!

We are writing to you from our Second Grade Class in Pawt. R.I. Our class loves your books and illustrations!The parts we liked of Leprechauns Don't Play Baketball, were; when the bee stung Eddie, and when the Leprachaun made the balls roll towards him. Eddie needed to learn a lesson! We didn't like it when Eddie pinched the children, and when the Leprechaun danced with Mrs. Jeepers. This was a very exciting book, it was also very funny, and a wonderful story to read for St. Patrick's Day. We would like to thank the authors for writing such a wonderful book! We hope that people enjoy it as much as we did! We would love to hear from the authors. Love, Your #1 Fans :>
