Leprechaun in Late Winter
Leprechaun in Late Winter. Mary Pope Osborne. 2010. Random House. 128 pages.
It was a chilly afternoon in late winter.
This was my first to read in the Magic Tree House series. And I wasn't too terribly impressed. I think that has more to do with me being an adult reader than the quality of the writing itself. The series stars two kids Jack and Annie. And the books follow their adventures in a Magic Tree House that transports them back and forth in time. They can go any where in the world to any time in the world. This adventure finds them in Ireland in 1862. The mission this time is to inspire a young girl, Augusta, to be creative. She is a young girl who doesn't know her own talents, her own strengths. And Merlin wants these two modern-day kids to help her out, to set her on the right path.
