I had mixed feeling about this book after reading it. I liked this book because it was written well. I did not like this book because I was not interested in the adventure that Jack and Annie went on. I think that the author did a really great job with character development. By reading this book, I can tell that Annie can think on her feet, and makes sure that her plans are well thought out. On the other hand, Jack is very scattered, and rushes through things. For example, “Sorry, Miss Augusta,” said Annie. “We’re almost ready.” She whispered directions to Jack. “Okay. Say your introduction. I’ll start to play. Then you’ll start to sing. Then—” “I’ve got it,” said Jack. “Let’s just start.” I like that there are pictures throughout this chapter book. Even though the pictures are black and white, they still enhance the story. For example, when Jack and Annie are walking with Augusta and they feel like Augusta thinks she is better than them, there is a picture of Jack and Annie walking behind Augusta, reinforcing what she thinks their social status is compared to hers. I also like that there are both inner and outer dialogue. For example, “Where is summer? Can you answer me that?” Mary’s question doesn’t make sense, Jack thought. The central message of this book is that taking the time to help others can in return help you. In the beginning of the story, Jack was struggling to write a story for school. He took on a mission to help inspire Augusta, and even though it seemed impossible at times, he kept trying, and in return was inspired to write his story for school. ( )

Another beuatiful, interesting look at an obscure point in history. This book ha inspired me to do more reading on Lady Augusta Gregory. ( )

Leprechaun are my favourite, but reading is more important so when an author combines the two, it create favourtism in the air. ( )

This book is part of a series of adventures in which the two main characters, young Jack and Annie stumble upon a magic tree house previously owned by a magical leprechaun hoping to better the world. In this adventure, Jack and Annie travel back in time to the nineteenth century in Ireland to convince a sad young girl to share her artistic talents with the world. This book would be appropriate for independent readers in grades 4-6. The themes addressed here are fiction, helping others, identity and mythology. ( )

Jack and Annie are on their third mission to find (and inspire!) creative people to bring happiness to others through the arts (Mozart and Louis Armstrong so far). Set in Ireland, Jack and Annie meet an Irish girl and go on a magical adventure that changes the girl’s life—she grows up to be Lady Gregory, who helped bring back the Irish legends, started a theater, and helped the Irish people regain both their heritage and their pride.
