"Laura and the Leprechauns" by Amber T. Kingston is an imaginative story and captures the magic of the world of leprechauns. The story is appropriate for reading during any season, and will soon become a St. Patrick's Day favorite.

Amber skillfully used both visual and written communication mediums. The radiant colors used in her stunning illustrations bring life to these legends. Amber uses captivating photographs in overlays with her beautiful paintings depicting the bushes and hedgerows where the leprechauns hide. Twelve of the pages feature sparkling glitter, which will stir up and enhance the creative imagination of the young reader and add to the sparkle and magic of narrative.

Inspired by the imagination of a seven year, Amber takes the reader on an amazing journey as Laura's wish come true. The author's word choice is age appropriate. The illustrations and dialog communicate the wholesomeness of children, through their facial expressions, and the sense of emotion they project. The book reminds the reader, whether young or old, anything is possible when you believe hard enough.

"Laura and the Leprechauns" is a timeless story of belief in Leprechauns and is destined to become a classic in children's literature. This is a book that will endure time. It should be added to school libraries. It will make a perfect gift of any occasion.
When I found out that a friend of a friend had a cousin who lived in Califonia who wrote a book about a little girl in Bavaria (where I live) who believed in Leprechauns, I had to giggle. My blood runs 1/16th green and a little Leprechaun action in the heart of Bavaria sounded like just the thing to get me out of my pre-winter funk. So I wrote to her and asked if I could see her book.

I'm glad I did.

The first word that comes to mind when I think of Amber Kingston's Laura and the Leprechauns is ,magical`. My children were mesmorised by the story of a little girl named Laura who summons the Leprechauns to her house before sunrise to see `if they are real'. Available in both English and German, it is a story about faith, belief, and the magic that resides in every child. The illustrations are melded with real-life pictures, making it an even more intriguing read as the author blends fact and fiction. And my voice wavered at the end as it often does when reading great children's literature. Laura and the Leprechauns is a classic children's tale. And to think. It happened right next door.

Because I tutor children in reading, and because I love to read to my nephews and nieces, I'm always looking for the next great children's book. My current favorite is Laura and the Leprechauns. I love this book! Childhood (and adulthood, for that matter) should be full of imagination and magic, and that's what this book is all about.

The story centers around two leprechauns who receive a letter from a little girl asking if they are real - she still believes in them, even though her friends don't. So they fly to her house on their magic shamrock and infuse her St. Patty's Day with supernatural fun.

The author is also the illustrator, and Kingston's bright artwork had me captivated from the first page, when I glimpsed a purple-eyed sun smiling down on the leprechauns' home (which was under an arching rainbow, of course!). Other pages feature glitter, which adds to the fantastic quality, as does her juxtaposition of her illustrations over actual photographs on several pages.

Laura and the Leprechauns is a wonderful book that shows you don't have to go to Oz or Neverland to find magic - it can exist in your own backyard, too!

When a little girl named Lauren questions the belief in leprechauns, two leprechauns, Maddy and Be-bub, from a land faraway called Shrilannon, answer her letter and head off on their magical flying shamrock to visit her just in time for St. Patrick's Day.

What a magical tale this is to share with your wee ones just in time for St. Patty's Day!

Laura and the Leprechauns reinforces the use of imagination and creativity - something that children need more than ever in these days of high tech.

Author Amber Kingston writes and illustrates this charming book. Amber enchants the reader by using a variety of mixed mediums which include real photographs, lots of glitter (that children adore) and delightfully colored pencil drawings.

Let Laura and the Leprechauns be a stepping stone to planning a fun-filled day of imagination and play with your children!

Armchair Interviews says: This is a book your children will come back to time and time again!
This is a beautifully illustrated children's book. Laura is a little girl who writes to the leprechauns because she believes in them, but her friends don't think they exist. Two friendly leprechauns receive her letter, and decide they should go visit. They take their magic shamrock and fly day and night to reach her. The leprechauns leave hints for her to figure out they are there. When they finally meet, they enjoy a lovely St. Patrick's Day tea party together by the lily pond.

The story is well written, and moves quickly. The lovely illustrations bring the story to life; my favorite is the one where they are riding their shamrock in the night sky. Many of the illustrations that include the leprechauns are enhanced with glitter, a refining touch. While their meeting occurs on St. Patrick's Day, I would read this story to my boys any time of the year. We are of Irish descent, and leprechauns are always welcome in our house!
