Every year a leprechaun visits my classroom. This year she/he left this book. The kids loved it. They felt sorry for the dog and predicted what might happen between the unlikely pair. We talked about the leprechaun's demeanor and feelings. The thing that i heard about most with this book was that "Lucky," the dog, was a girl! This is a very big deal with 5 & 6 year-olds...especially the girls! This book is perfect for St. Paddy's units or getting in the mood for the holiday and talk of wee folk. The illustrations are charming as well.

The Luckiest Leprechaun is the delightful, hilarious, and thoroughly entertaining tale of friendship between a Leprechaun and a big shaggy dog. Justine Korman's original and engaging story is perfectly showcased by Denise Brunkus's vivid and colorful artwork. The Luckiest Leprechaun is enthusiastically recommended for young readers at home, in school, or at the library.

This is a wonderful tale of the unlikely friendship between a lovable dog and a crusty old leprechaun. My almost nine year old daughter loved the pictures in this book.

Yet another awful kids' book. No story, no plot, cheesy illustrations, no moral. Just mindless. If you care for your kids, get them something with meaning, not this rainy day junk.
