Booklist Review

Ages 4^-7. MacKenzie O'Shamrock is a feisty leprechaun who makes shoes for fairies and keeps a close eye on his gold. A dog named Lucky comes to stay, and MacKenzie scowls, but the pup grows on him. When it seems Lucky has stolen the gold, Mac finds he is just as disturbed by Lucky's defection as he is by the disappearance of the treasure. The story rambles, and there's never much tension--children will guess that Lucky is safeguarding the gold, not stealing it. But the artwork, if not inspired, is sprightly, and if the tale is not compelling, it's pleasant enough. For libraries needing some fresh material for St. Patrick's Day. --Ilene Cooper
