Shannon is a stepdancer with a broken shoe. How can she ever win the Saint Patrick's Day stepdancing contest? Enter Liam, the world's tallest leprechaun. A leprechaun grants wishes, right? But Liam not only doesn't look like a leprechaun, he grants wishes in his own unusual way. Sean Callahan's tale taps to a lively finish; Kathleen Kemly's perfect pastels add to the happiness. The author, who also wrote The Bear Hug, lives in Illinois. The illustrator lives in Washington State.
