About this title


Leprechauns are an integral part of Irish mythology, featuring in many folk tales and legends. Their short temper and stature, renowned skill as shoemakers and tinkers and wizened features have fascinated mankind for centuries. Now The Leprechaun Companion provides the first fully comprehensive guide to their secret world, revealing helpful hints on how to deal with leprechauns, what to say (and not to say), and how to find their crocks of gold. Among many other intriguing insights, The Leprechaun Companion looks at: - Leprechaun fashion, and what the well dressed leprechaun will be wearing this year. - Keeping hold of your leprechaun when you have caught it. - Female leprechauns and their place in Leprechaun society. - Leprechaun magic, and how humans can learn from them. The beautiful and intricate illustrations by Wayne Anderson illustrate every aspect of the Irish faery world, showing the various types of leprechaun and their distinguishing marks. This enchanting book will appeal to anyone who has ever been walking down a quiet country lane and thought they heard the tap, tap, tap of a faery hammer.
