Gigi promised that Lily’s 13th birthday would be very special – but Lily always assumed that Gigi (grandmother) would be there to celebrate with her.  Too bad, because Gigi could have really helped Lily with exploding packages, kidnapping leprechauns, and three special tests that Lily must past if she wants to assume her role as the guardian of the Green family treasure – GOLD – LOTS of it!  For the Greens really are a family of leprechauns and Lily now knows that she is also part of it.  Someone, however, seems to have made Lily’s tests particularly difficult and perhaps downright dangerous.  If she doesn’t succeed, not only will she not access the gold, but she will forget that she ever knew she had more family – including all memories of her beloved Gigi.  

Totally cute and fun and not just for St. Patrick’s Day.
