That's What Leprechauns Do

What do leprechauns do? They bury a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, of course. But as Mrs. Bally Bunion’s ox, Miss Maude Murphy’s hen, and Old Jamie soon find out, they can’t resist having a little fun along the way. For, besides burying pots of gold, mischief is what leprechauns do!

Based on a classic Irish folktale, this is the perfect picture book to share on St. Patrick’s Day.

In this classic Irish legend, two harpists—merry-hearted Old Pat and ill-spirited Young Tom—set off for a contest to name the finest harpist in all of Ireland. When Young Tom realizes that Old Pat is truly the better musician, he schemes to be the winner—but he doesn't reckon with the clever trickery of a mischievous little leprechaun.

El Duende Irlandés y El Laberinto De Los Sueños Rotos
por Gen AG

For older children.
What would happen if you traveled to Ireland and a leprechaun asked you to help him find treasure in exchange for sharing the wealth with you?  Asher Smith is a single father who shines shoes on the dense streets of New York City in the 1930s; a time of economic crisis and poverty. 

But, one day unexpectedly with the help of his friend Fionn O'Sullivan, Asher travels to Ireland with his young daughter to work as a gardener in an old mansion, where a dark and mysterious forest is located. In the courtyard of the mansion things happen meaninglessly and from that forest no man has ever returned. Asher will discover a place called Ledrema, where flowers sing, trees walk, a clock goes back and evil beings and darkness abounds. In Ledrema, it appears there is no goodness - in fact there is, but it is only a pinch! Would you help the leprechaun find his treasure?
