A Kid's Review on February 15, 2010
Format: Hardcover
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!

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).

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.

I love reading these books to my children. We haven't found one that we didn't like. I always learn something new from the facts that the fiction is based on.
We have also listened to some of the books on CD in the car and they are enjoyed by the whole family.

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 six year old grandson has loved all of the series. I enjoy the stories because they tell history that makes it interesting for the child to understand. The history lesson encourages discussion on ethics of the time verses now.

The Magic Tree House book called Leprechaun in Late Winter is about a brother and sister named Jack and Annie. In the beginning Jack and Annie go to a tree house and get a book and point to Galway, Ireland. Then they’re in Galway, Ireland. In the middle they meet a girl named Augusta. Then the three see these little people called the Shee and Augusta gets taken by the Shee. What happens to Augusta? You have to read the book to find out!
One of my favorite parts is when they meet a leprechaun. I like the leprechaun because he is funny. Another thing I like is when the leprechaun plays a flute. I like when he played the flute because he frowned when he played it, and I thought that was funny, too.
I recommend that this book is for people that have an imagination. Another thing I recommend that this book would be good for is a first grader because it would be a good fit book. That’s what I would recommend about the book called Leprechaun in Late Winter. Now go discover if Augusta will get saved!
