About the Book



A clever woman named Fiona must pass the leprechaun king's tests when she tries to get back all the luck he has locked away from humans.



Book Synopsis



An original Irish folktale full of wit, magic, and leprechauns, that's sure to delight on St. Patrick's Day and all year round.

The luck of the Irish has disappeared after the greedy Leprechaun King has taken all the good fortune in Ireland and locked it away. Now it's up to the clever and capable Fiona to divise a plan to take the good fortune back from the leprechauns to help the people of Ireland. Using her wits, Fiona outsmarts the powerful Leprechaun King to restore the luck of the Irish back to the Emerald Isle.

Luminous and enchanting illustrations add to the wonder of this original folktale, that will charm readers young and old looking for a bit of magic on St. Patty's Day and any day.



Review Quotes




Like her Leprechaun Gold (1998), Bateman's latest exudes Irish flair. In this story, the leprechaun king, distraught because the newly arrived "big folk" have begun to soak up too much luck, has the leprechauns gather up all the luck they can find and lock it away in an oak chest so that he may distribute it as he pleases. With all the luck of the land under the control of the leprechaun king, the big folk suffer many hardships-until a clever woman named Fiona tricks him into putting a hole in the oak chest so that a steady stream of luck pours forth once again into the Irish air for all to share. Children will delight in the cunning way that Fiona triumphs over the leprechaun king, as well as in the rhythmic language of this well-told tale. Using acrylic, watercolor and gel medium, Murphy creates simple, angular figures and soft, rich backgrounds, a combination that perfectly accentuates the folksy charisma of Bateman's story. (Picture book. 5-9)
