K-Gr 2—The best-selling creators of the holiday classic How To Catch an Elf are back with another adorable book to enthrall children and families. Perfect for Saint Patrick's Day or just general laughs, it will inspire children to get creative and build the best "leprechaun traps" they can invent. A leprechaun taunts listeners, saying that the traps set out by other children aren't clever enough to catch him or his pot of gold. Since the leprechaun can't be caught, he wreaks havoc on the house, dyes the toilets green, and commits other mischievous pranks. Narrated with British joviality by Qarie Marshall, this hilarious telling of the naughty leprechaun who can't be caught will enchant children. Marshall uses inflections, twinkling laughter, and deviously delightful snickering to provide an enjoyable listen. Also included are a page-turn track and special effect noises. VERDICT A story the whole family can share.—Erin Cataldi, Johnson County Public Library, Franklin, IN
