Leprechaun in Late Winter by Mary Pope Osborne
Jack and Annie have been sent back in time again by Merlin. This time they’re sent back to 1862 to inspire a young girl named Augusta. When they try to inspire her by helping her to see the Irish Shee (fairies), she gets swept back into the world of the Shee. Can Jack and Annie rescue Augusta and inspire her?
A fun adventure story that is filled with fairies, magic, and friendship. The text is age-appropriate, the illustrations complement the text well. Readers who like adventure, fairies, Magic Treehouse series, and fantasy will enjoy reading this book. EL (K-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, HUN Public Library.
