The three leprechauns must hurry to get to where they buried the pot of gold and dig it up before the rainbow comes. The sky is beginning to look gray and they know they don't have much time. On their journey to the pot of gold, the leprechauns try their best to avoid mischief, but the inevitable happens. After getting into a bit of trouble, the leprechauns finally make it to the pot of gold and place it at the end of the rainbow just in time. ( )

Three little leprechauns wake from a nap to see that the sky is filled with clouds and realize that soon a rainbow will appear and they must get to work. But instead of taking care of the pot of gold these leprechauns are bent on mischief. One trick after another is played on unsuspecting neighbors for supposedly this is what leprechauns do. An author's note at the end lends authenticity about these legendary creatures. Certaintainly a delightful tale to read around about St. Patrick's Day. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618354107, Hardcover)

The three leprechauns Ari, Boo, and Col have a job to do. They must race to where they’ve buried the pot of gold and dig it up before the rainbow comes. The clouds are already gathering, so there’ll be no time for mischief along the way.

But Mrs. Ballybunion’s cow, Miss Maud Murphy’s hen, and Old Jamie soon find out that the three clever fellows can’t resist having a little fun on the road to Paddywhackers Bog. For, in addition to putting a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, mischief is what leprechauns do!

Delightful illustrations from a Caldecott medalist and a playful text written in a lilting Irish style make this a perfect story for St. Patrick’s Day or any other time of year. Includes an author’s note about leprechauns and rainbows.
