In this St. Patrick’s Day children’s book, V. R. Duin pens a delightful limerick that follows the Goopy Ghost in the rescue of a leprechaun and his pot of gold from thieves.
Together, Goopy and the leprechaun work out an ingenious scheme to get the gold back and show up the mischievous thieves. Goopy turns into gold coins that prove irresistible.
What Goopy does next will teach the sticky-handed fellows a lesson or two about sharing. Engaging, humorous and full of funny details.
Of course, the thieves didn't realize
This pot held a ghostly surprise.
Within that fake gold
Lurked Goopy the Bold!
Oh what a fantastic disguise!
