Entertaining and cute

LIAM THE LEPRECHAUN is about the little people of Ireland and the tiniest Leprechaun of all, Poor Liam. Liam is invislible, or at least he feels that way. He is so tiny that no one every notices him in his village of Shillelagh. He tries many things to get noticed, but they only make his life a little more complicated - like growing his beard super long to stand out - but he only trips on it all the time! Finally Liam decides to visit the wisest of all leprechauns, O'Hoolihan. O'Hoolihan gives Liam so wise advice and Liam tries to take it to heart.

The story of Liam was cute and had a few lessons thrown in for your child to think about. The writing was simple for younger readers, but the Irish names might prove a little hard for them to get. My little girl liked me reading this aloud to her, but it was a long story so I broke it up a few times because with the lack of pictures she would quickly loose interest. There were a few sketches in the book though, and she thought they were very cute and of course she was introduced to the myth of the Leprechaun, so we had to go over that.

Overall LIAM THE LEPRECHAUN was entertaining and cute and I would recommend it to people interested in Irish legends and myths, or anyone who just wants a touching addition to their young readers library.

Although O'Hoolihan did not have a direct solution to the problem, he does tell Liam …

Charles A Wilkinson spins a tale with the magic of an Irishman. LIAM THE LEPRECHAUN is more than just a story about a very tiny leprechaun from the tiny town of Shillelagh who bemoans his miniscule size and his commensurate miniscule pot of gold (a leprechaun's pot of gold - which of course everybody knows they have - is relative to his size): it is a bedtime Production number. All the leprechauns look at Liam with pity until Liam takes his problem to the wise old O'Hoolihan. The kind and intelligent …
