Synopsis

Leprechaun on the Loose by Annette Kelleher

Biddy Blatherskate is fed up with wet weather and minding her father's gold. When a young Australian boy, Corey, visiting Ireland stumbles on her treasure, she's willing to do a deal in exchange for a chance to visit Australia. Her father's gold for Corey's passport! But leprechauns and humans don't mix - not without a heap of trouble for all concerned! Sunburnt and in hiding, Biddy is soon fed up with Australia too. Meanwhile, Corey tries to spend the gold, but it's not legal tender. Biddy heads back to Ireland to retrieve her father's treasure, but she's lost Corey's passport. No passport means no gold! Things are looking grim for Biddy and Corey. This is Red Flag number 7 .
