Katie and the Leprechaun

Katie and The LeprechaunKatie and The Leprechaun by Kathryn England, illustrated by Emma Stuart (New Frontier Publishing)
PB RRP $12.95

On her way to school, Katie O'Reilly bumps into a leprechaun named Paddy. Katie discovers that Paddy is a one-shoe maker and is on the look-out for new ideas. Eventually, once Katie recovers from the shock and amazement of meeting one of the little people, Katie helps her new friend come up with a solution to his dilemma.

Emma Stuart's bright colourful illustrations are dotted throughout the book. The pictures will delight readers and assist them by reflecting the story and breaking up the text. I particularly liked the depiction of Katie with her messy pigtails and freckles.

Katie and the Leprechaun is part of the new junior fiction series, Little Rockets. The books are of a high production quality and perfect for newly independent readers with easy to follow plots and likeable characters.
