Ce commentaire est de: IS IT ST. PATRICK'S DAY OR LEPRECHAUN DAY? (Kindle Edition)

This book was an absolutely fantastic read! It had an exciting plot line, well developed characters that charm the reader, and was very well written. It is a fun read filled with magic and excitement.

The e-book is based on a conversation that is had between two young boys and their uncle. Their uncle is from Ireland and speaks with an authentic Irish accent, even using traditional Irish vocabulary in his speech. The boys are fascinated with their uncle’s knowledge of St. Patrick's Day and Leprechauns and listen keenly to his story of the history of Irish culture and traditions.

Throughout the book, I really fell in love with the characters. The pure innocence of the boys and witty charisma of their uncle made the story enjoyable. Porter did a really good job of creating characters that the reader can feel like they understand; they seem real, believable, and authentic. The young boys' adorable and endearing personalities mixed with their uncle's wise yet silly character make for a fun read throughout the book!

Furthermore, this story sheds light on some interesting facts on Irish history and exposes the reader to a new way of thinking. The uncle’s story about St. Patrick's Day and Leprechaun Day is enlightening and made me reconsider the way that I view this now very commercial holiday. It was lovely to reference religion in the story as well as this is an important piece which is often easily overlooked in most holidays. Overall, I am just thoroughly impressed with this ebook and I am so glad that I chose to purchase it! It is an entertaining, sweet, and charming story that is perfect to share with young ones.
