One of the stronger picture books for St. Patrick's Day, I enjoyed this story about Shannon, with her old scuffed shoes and home-made dress, who worries she will no be a strong enough competitor in the Irish step-dance contest against the other girls with pretty costumes and shiny new shoes. When the heel of her shoe breaks, her will almost does, too, but she doesn't lose hope and counts backwards in Gaelic for a leprechaun to come. When she opens her eyes, a five-foot-eleven man with a beard st [...]

My two-year old really enjoys this book but I suspect a lot of it has to do with my husband reading the leprechaun with what he refers to as his "Lucky Charms" accent. It's actually quite a positive story about appreciating what you already have.

Shannon and The World's Tallest Leprechaun by Sean Callahan, illustrated by Kathleen Kemly, is a contemprary tale of a stepdancing contest and a girl who needs help from a leprechaun.Callahan's pastels match this story well. Like fellow reviewer Kathryn, I enjoyed the many views of the yellow cat. My favorite images are Shannon counting backwards, fixing her shoe, grumpy at Liam, and with rollers in her hair. I really enjoyed this tale stressing self confidence, practice, fulfilling wishes and s [...]

Enjoyed this story quite a bit. A 6-foot-tall leprechaun helps Shannon get ready for her Irish step-dancing competition. The leprechaun's magic includes a little bit of self-acceptance, a little bit of reframing the world, a lot of hard work, and maybe a little actual magic too!

So cute! I loved that the leprechaun made Shannon work for her goals. I'll admit that I suspected it was the dad dressing up as Liam, so I was pleasantly surprised that the author went the folklore route.

When Shannon meets the "world's tallest leprechaun", she thinks he's lying to her. He's too tall to be a leprechaun. And although the wishes he "grants" to her come true, they aren't really granted magically. She works for those wishes. Not a bad read-aloud for St. Patrick's Day week.

Shannon is an Irish step dancer who discovers self confidence with the help of a wise leprechaun. Good lesson--talent outshines appearance. Good addition if needing more St. Patrick's Day titles.

Story about Irish step dancing - it's not only about those fancy dresses and wigs. Picture book format; but really for early elementary aged children.

Cute. Apparently leprechauns are not fairy god mothers. A tale about the importance of learning and practicing.
