Description


Ever wondered why leprechauns hide their pot of gold at the end of rainbows? The answer is revealed in this delightful and magical tale from the New York Times bestselling team Katherine Tegen and Sally Anne Lambert!

In a faraway village lives a talented little shoemaker—who also happens to be a leprechaun. He keeps the gold that he earns from making shoes hidden away in his home, where he thinks it will be safe.

But one day a greedy man named Tim spies the leprechaun's pot of gold and tries to steal it! How can the little leprechaun outsmart Tim and make sure his pot of gold will be safe forever?

In this original tale, Katherine Tegen has captured the magic of the wily leprechaun, while Sally Anne Lambert's glowing illustrations bring him to life.
