This weeks book treasure was The Leprechaun’s Gold by Pamela Duncan Edwards. Kindhearted Old Pat and coldhearted Young Tom set off from their tiny village for a royal contest to determine the finest harpist in all of Ireland. As the two men sit by a campfire on the eve of the contest, Young Tom secretly breaks a string on Old Pat’s harp in an attempt to ensure his own victory. Then, out of the darkness they hear a cry for help. Kindly Old Pat comes to the aid of what turns out to be a leprechaun while selfish Young Tom quickly flees the scene. At the contest the next day, both are appropriately repaid for their actions by the leprechaun and his buddies.
