Clever Tom and the Leprechaun: An Old Irish Story by Linda Shute

Clever Tom Fitzpatrick thinks his fortune is made when he captures a leprechaun. The leprechaun negotiates his freedom by showing Tom where his pot of gold is hidden under the earth in a field of yellow flowers (boliauns). Tom marks the spot with a red garder so he can return with his spade to dig up the treasure. The leprechaun agrees not to remove Tom's garter marker. When Tom returns, he finds a field of red gartered boliauns - so the clever leprechaun got to keep his word and his fortune too, because poor Tom never found the treasure after numerous attempts of digging up ground. The audio tape version adds a bit more of Irish flavor to the story.

Also included is a 2 page compilation of leprechaun folklore that both children and adults will enjoy.
