Overview

"A leprechaun can be alone without being lonely," says Brian O'Shea. 

And that's how Brian likes it-- so when a big human man tries to build a cottage on top of Brian's underground home, the leprechaun does his best to scare the fellow away with his magical tricks.

But Sean McDonald refuses to be frightened off-- and over time the two develop an unlikely friendship.  After all, a leprechaun in the house is a fine piece of luck-- and that luck comes in handy when news of Sean's good fortune attracts dangerous attention. 

Cleverly told and brightly illustrated, this folktale friendship is a delightful tale for St. Patrick's day-- or any day when you could use a little magic.
