Format: Hardcover
This was a great book. I know that this book is very light
reading for me but I have always loved this series. In
this book Jack and Annie are sent by Merlin on a Merlin
Mission. They go to Ireland in the 19th century and their
mission is to inspire a girl named Augusta so that she can
share her amazing gift, her mesmerizing potential with the
rest of the world. Jack and Annie face a few obstacles
along the way but after all that is one of the milestones
in making a great story, creating conflicts. They
successfully achieve their goal in the end.

This was a good book. I personally liked it. The only
thing that I don't like about this series is that the
author always follows the same format. She never varies or
differentiates from her strict format. Other than the
story itself. That is what gets you fed up with the
series. You know, if you're not a 7 year old.

Leprechaun in Late Winter was an awesome book. I am in 2nd grade and love reading Magic Tree House books. I learned a lot about Ireland and leprechauns. This book would make a great St. Patrick's Day gift!

Format: Paperback
This is a great story about an interesting, but not very well known (to me anyway) lady from Irish history, Augusta, later known as Lady Gregory. I won't give away what she becomes in case anyone doesn't know, because this story kept me guessing until the end and I don't want to ruin it for anyone.

Jack and Annie are taken back in time and transported to Ireland to help Augusta for reasons unknown to them, but through a series of trial and error, and of course high adventure they find out their purpose and get the job done, putting Augusta on the right path. A lesson about how helping others doesn't always translate into being a good person if you aren't very nice is also thrown into the story, which I thought was a nice added element. A lot of attention is given to the si (pronounced shee) or fairies of Irish folktales which is a lot of fun for kids and adults to read about. This was a great adventure story, enjoyed by all who attended the kid's book club I hosted it with(including myself).

Format: Paperback
I absolutely love how educational and inspirational this series is for my kids and young readers. Mary does an amazing job with not only taking kids on a history lesson in this story by taking them back in time to the mid 1800's in Ireland, she also teaches readers about this Irish lore, and introduces them to a real historical figure, Lady Gregory. I for one was fascinated about the lore of Irish fairies, known as Shee in this story, and the role they played in Jack and Annie's quest to help young Lady Gregory.

Jack and Annie once again set off another adventure for Merlin and this time it's to help a young Irish girl find her inspiration. When Jack and Annie set off in this lush, green and soaking wet country side of Ireland to find her, they didn't except to find someone who stopped believing and stopped telling stories. Young Lady Augusta Gregory remembered every story she was ever told and used to love roaming the country side looking for the Seer with her brothers. Now all that's changed and she no longer believes. With Jack and Annie's help and the help of an old friend of Lady Augusta Gregory's old nurse maid, Willie the Leprechaun, they set off to help Lady Gregory in a rather unexpected way.

This is truly a fun magical journey that introduces young readers to the enchanting lore of the Irish. I loved the history, the perfectly described setting and the characters that are introduced in this story. I was impressed with the amount of research that Mary put into this story. I liked that she not only lets readers know her inspiration for this story, but she includes detailed information about the Shee, Lady Gregory, as well as some fun games in the back of the book. This is a fabulous read for 1st and 2nd grade readers.

My son told me that my grandaughter was very much interested in this series of books so I ordered some to keep at my home for her to look at when she visited. With the weather and all I have not been able to see her yet but I'm sure she is going to love them. The books themselves are well constructed which pleases me and seems that they are going to be a pleasant surprise for her.
