But will they be able to find his pot of gold? Natasha Wing's sweet story is once again told in verse to the same meter of Clement Moore's classic.

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!

Catch a Lucky Little Leprechaun on Saint Patrick's Day...if you can! Once a year at the beginning of every March, Saint Patrick sends out his Lucky Little Leprechauns to spread laughter and luck throughout the world. You must always watch your leprechaun. If you look away from your leprechaun, he might vanish and reappear in different places. Now you can follow the instructions found on an ancient scroll hidden within a stone wall of a medieval Irish castle and build your very own leprechaun trap to catch him. The leprechaun trap can be a creative craft or even a simple or compound machine for a fun and educational STEM or STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) activity. On the night before Saint Patrick's Day, set the leprechaun trap. In the morning the children can look to see if they have caught The Lucky Little Leprechaun. Your leprechaun might play tricks or turn things GREEN! He will give gold coins or other surprises for his freedom on Saint Patrick's Day! The Lucky Little Leprechaun deluxe kit contains everything you need to begin your own family tradition: one of Saint Patrick's Lucky Little Leprechauns, a pot, gold coins, and a beautifully illustrated picture book in a keepsake boxed set with instructions for how to build your very own leprechaun trap. Celebrate the holiday by making this your own family tradition!

Not many people in Tinker's Cove, Maine, knew Old Dan Malone. The grizzled barkeep's social circle was limited to the rough-hewn lobstermen and other assorted toughs that frequented his bar. But when his body is found bobbing in the town's icy harbor, Lucy Stone makes getting to know more about Old Dan a priority. Local musician Dave Reilly insists Old Dan conned a winning lottery ticket worth five grand from him. Handyman Brian Donohue claims that Old Dan stiffed him for repair work he'd done at the bar. The confusion surrounding the death is only compounded by the arrival of actor Dylan Malone, Old Dan's brother and a prominent, if fading, attraction of the Dublin stage. Dylan has come to direct the production of "Finian's Rainbow," the featured event at Our Lady of Hope's annual St. Patrick's Day extravaganza. Was Old Dan killed by someone he'd cheated or someone he'd loved? While Lucy can't be sure, one thing is abundantly clear--the stage is set for a murder mystery with a killer ending! "Warm and homespun characters, plenty of seaside ambience and a fast-moving plot make this perfect winter cozy." --Publishers Weekly
