Publisher's Summary

All sixteen-year-old Tommin wants is to make beautiful shoes and care for his beloved grandmother, but his insatiable need to steal threatens to destroy everything. Driven by a curse that demands more and more gold, he's sure to get caught eventually.
When mysterious Lorcan Reilly arrives in town with his "niece," Eve, Tommin believes the fellow wants to help him. Instead, Lorcan whisks him off to the underground realm of the Leprechauns, where, alongside Eve, he's forced to prepare to become one of them.
As Lorcan's plans for his "gold-children" are slowly revealed, Tommin and Eve plan their escape. But with Tommin's humanity slipping away, the fate-crossed pair has everything to lose unless they can find a way to outsmart a magical curse centuries in the making.

Folking Fantastic!

This is a wonderful folk tale told with equal parts fantasty and humanity. Carrie Ann Noble pulls you into a magical world that overlaps with our own in a wonder-filled way. Gerard Doyle always shines, and really brings out the internal struggle of the protagonist, who is trapped between two worlds.

Aimed at a younger public, but still enjoyable

While I can see this book being more fun to middle schoolers, at 27 I cherished the moments I spent listening to the wonderful Gerard Doyle telling the story of a boy cursed to become a leprechaun.

This book has a fairy tale feel to it, but it's a fresh take on the folklore. I will be sure to check her other book that covers mermaids. What can I say, I'm young at heart and it the story was well told and entertaining! :)
