Annotation: Five little leprechauns wreak havoc on the unsuspecting city of Dublin as it prepares to celebrate one of its most sacred holidays: St. Patrick's Day.

The diminuitive mischief-makers begin the day by setting their sights on one family in particular, and a rather large one at that. This family consists of a mother and father and their eleven T'ank Gods (children). What will happen to this clan? What will happen during the St. Patrick's Day parade? Only the leprechaun's know for sure, and they are not talking. Whatever happens, it is bound to be fun!

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 1997)
While leprechauns play pranks, such as stealing the breakfast bread and getting the Lord Mayor's carriage stuck in a ditch, an Irish family goes to Dublin to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Using pedestrian verse, the story is choppy and lacks a strong plot. The ink and pastel illustrations have a clumsy feel. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews
