The team behind How to Catch a Leprechaun follows the efforts of several childrenclearly ones who are destined for Santas naughty listto capture one of Santas elves. Mischievous readers will likely enjoy watching the tiny elf attempt to escape traps that include a tinsel net, a family cat, and (somewhat disturbingly) sticks of dynamite nestled in a pile of chocolates, as well as a cowboy tree ornament wielding an electric brand. Why all the threats of violence against someone whos part of Santas gift-delivery operation? Its never really clear, and before long Santa and the elf are narrowly escaping hams and cookies fired at them through a Dinner Cannon, coasting down a river of eggnog, and soaring across the sky on a pizza. Wallaces rhymes and Elkertons in-your-face images hit their comedic marks, but the overall story is chaotic and confusing. Ages 48. (Oct.)
