"Who doesn’t love St. Paddy’s Day with the leprechauns, the shamrocks and of course, the infamous pot of gold?

V.R. Duin has created quite an adventure for Goopy Ghost all around this theme of St. Patrick’s Day. The little Ghost discovers a locked up leprechaun whose gold has been stolen by nasty robbers. Goopy comes to the rescue and for his valiant efforts gets three wishes granted to him.

The art is very expressive, colourful and whimsical. It enriches the meaning of the storyline a great deal. The text is written in limerick style which kids just love. Goopy casts his wishes and even goes so far as to find work for the robbers. The book is very enjoyable and has a great moral compass to discuss with your kids. I am sure it will be a wonderful addition to your St. Patrick’s Day collection of books. A perfect book to read alone or to share out loud.

"Limericks are a poetry form that seems to be designed for fun and children. Children love to be read to and they especially love repetition and rhythm in literature. Limericks are easy to learn and to teach. In this book, there are several stanzas in limerick form that can serve as perfect templates. The basic rule of thumb is that the easier the words fall off the tongue, the closer you are to the correct form and rhythm set in the templates. Why not try celebrating St. Patrick's Day playing around with words in meter and rhyme after reading this book to your children/grandchildren?

There's a lot to love about the Goopy Ghost series. The author has chosen well in her choice of artists for these books. The pictures are in bright cheerful water color paints. Children who are visual learners will find their eyes drawn to the pages repeatedly. The simple scenes depict believable adorable characters and Goopy especially as the least scariest ghost you've ever known. Kudos to artist Bonnie Lemaire.

Goopy Ghost is kind-hearted, fun-loving and generous. In his stories, he often places other peoples' needs before his own, and he is creative in his problem solving skills. In this story, Goopy seeks out a leprechaun to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. He is looking for fun, but finds a problem to solve instead. His plan to resolve the dilemma has lasting positive consequences even as he selflessly gives up a reward to ensure the problem doesn't happen again. Fun finds him in the end.

Children need these type of character traits emulated continually. They need to be shown the rewards in being kind, generous and selfless. With so much negative surrounding them, they need all the positive role models you can give them.

"My 3 1/2-year-old loves Goopy, so when we received a copy of the St. Patrick's Day book as a gift her reaction was, "Goopy, Goopy, hooray!" Of all the Goopy books we have purchased (we have the original Goopy book and the Christmas book), this is my personal favorite. I love for words to have a beat and a pattern to them. In this one, the author apparently (it explains on the back) used limericks throughout the book. What fun! I have some Irish in my background, so I was thrilled to introduce this to our daughter. Goopy is such a fun, lovable character. I am happy to support this up-and-coming author in her efforts to crack what is an incredibly difficult area of the book market. My daughter says, "Goopy, Goopy, hooray!"; I say, "Hooray for independent authors!" It's a fun, well-written and very unique book your little one will love!!" said.

"Oh what an exciting adventure Goopy Ghost takes us on! With the joyful spirit that he does possess, he leads us on the trail of this wonderful tail! You will be feeling like dancing and prancing along with them. You will see unfold the happiness that St. Patrick's Day does hold! I sure enjoyed this beautifully worded and illustrated book. I know that it will be a pleasure to read it aloud with your children and let everyone in on the fun! I would say this is book for children of all ages and it should put you in the celebratory mood and give you great ideas for this holiday. Do not delay...get your Goopy Ghost at St. Patrick's Day right away." said.
