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.
