Funny Leprechaun Books for Boys
Pete the cat is always funny! In Pete The Cat: The Great Leprechaun Chase, Pete is running a leprechaun catching business. He is going to try to catch Clover, the leprechaun for his friends. But Clover, like all wee folk, is tricky! Comes with a poster, stickers and even punch out St. Patrick’s Day cards.
Lucky Tucker is about a cute white terrier names Tucker who happens to be having a very bad day. Until he rolls in a bed of four leaf clovers. As you can image, that turns out to be lucky. Cute for younger boys.
You know the story of the The Gingerbread Man but I bet you don’t know The Gingerbread Man and the Leprechaun Loose at School! A leprechaun is loose in the school and you know that means trouble! He is going about making messes and raising a ruckus and The Gingerbread Man is sure that he can catch him. Can he set a leprechaun trap that will actually work?
Eve Bunting is a great story teller and she wrote That’s What Leprechauns Do! As you may guess, what they do, is hide gold at the end of the rainbow and also cause a lot of trouble! She brings you the tradition of leprechauns in a silly way.
Lucky: The Adventures of the Unluckiest Leprechaun is a Nick movie which also has a book. Lucky, isn’t lucky and he sets out on an adventure to recover his families gold. I watched the trailer for the movie here and am sure the book will be a hoot.
The Night Before Saint Patrick’s Day is a take on The Night Before Christmas with a matching rhyming pattern. Can you imagine what it would be like if you actually caught a leprechaun?! Well, that would be pretty great, right? After all if you catch him he needs to tell you where the pot of gold is. Hmm.
I went back and forth on whether or not to include this book. Not because it isn’t an enjoyable read, but because I wasn’t quite sure if boys of today would find it amusing or not. It is worth a try though because it is a traditional tale and some of the boys did find it pretty funny. The humor just isn’t green toilets type of funny. Give Tim O’Toole and the Wee Folk a try and see what you think.
The cover artwork drew me to this book. The illustrations are fun and your boys will enjoy them. How to Catch a Leprechaun is worth a look for sure. This rhyming story is all about who is really in charge! You might think you can simply set a trap but . . . the wee little imp has plans of his own.
I hope you found a funny leprechaun book for you and your boys to read for Saint Patrick’s Day!
