“My husband is from Ireland. My sons kindergarten teacher asked my husband to come to school and be the Secret Reader. He brought this book to read to the class. The children had all built their Leprechaun traps and he read this book to the children the day the project was due- They LOVED it!! It is a cute little story – I gave it 4 stars because as an adult the story seemed a little unfinished to me – but kids don’t care! If you buy this – I’m sure your kids will love it! It shows just how sneaky those little leprechauns can be! ;)” —Amazon Reviewer Kristin
