Who could add to the merriment of St. Patrick’s Day more than leprechauns? When they make up their minds, they are determined to make mischief . . . and that is just what they do in A Leprechaun’s St. Patrick’s Day.
Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade will never be the same!
The leprechauns set their sights on a family’s breakfast to start the day. Then they decide that even with all of the shamrocks, bagpipes, drums, and banners, the parade needs a little something extra—a dose of leprechaun fun.
A Leprechaun’s St. Patrick’s Day is also available in an CD format and is complemented with An Irish Night Before Christmas. Both tales are narrated by the author.
