Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Saints preserve us! Just when his poor wife's back gives out, lazy but lucky Jamie O'Rourke traps himself a leprechaun, from whom he wins a single wish. What does Jamie wish for? All the potatoes he can eat. But this time Jamie may have bitten off more than he can chew, in this colorful Irish folktale filled with humor and a touch of blarney, too!

"Delightful...perfect for St. Patty's Day storytelling". — Children's Book Review Service

"This inspired Irish folktale dearly illustrates that taking the easy way out is sometimes more trouble than it's worth... dePaola's characteristic homespun style and round, childlike faces add plenty of zip to this silly story". — Publishers Weekly
