if you found a pot of gold?
One St Patrick’s Day, I was crawling
through a field of clovers. I was looking for a
four-leaf clover for good luck, when I bumped into a
leprechaun! He was polishing his pot of gold coins, so I
asked him "Do you want me to help you polish your
coins?" He said, "Yes, please." He gave me a small damp
cloth and I started polishing the gold coins. When I was
done, the coins gleamed. It was like they were made out
of crystal. The leprechaun said, "Thank you for helping
me polish my coins. Because you’ve helped me and have
such a kind heart, I’ve got a present for you." He gave
me a small box. Then I said, "Thank you. I hope the rest
of your St. Patrick’s Day is full of glee". Then I went
home. When I got home, I opened my present. What I saw
in the box is a mall leprechaun outfit. When I took the
outfit out of the box, it grew into the size that would
fit me. I put it on. When I put the outfit on, I felt
like I would have a lot of good-luck forever.
Those who help others are the ones who
One day I wanted some money so I thought I would
catch a leprechaun. I took my camera that could catch
something that a human eye can’t. So by the valley, I
froze the camera. Suddenly, a green clad appeared on the
screen. "Gotcha" I said. I took all the supplies needed:
laser watches, nets, paralyze beams, fake gold, a
hologram projector, iris camera, and a bottle of Irish’s
best whiskey. First I projected a hologram of me behind
the leprechaun. "Great" yelped the leprechaun and ran
under a tree. That was when a net fell on him and lasers
crossed the net. "Where is your gold?" I asked. "In my
tree vault" came the reply. "You can have some whiskey"
I said. "Thanks" said the leprechaun. He drank it. "I
will release you to open the tree vault, but if you run
one thousand paralyze beams will shoot you. If you
refuse you will die tomorrow." I said. "O.K." said the
leprechaun and he gave me the gold. I still don’t know
what to do with it.
One day, on my vacation to Ireland, I woke up really
early. I changed and then I went downstairs to make
breakfast. I had made my cereal. I looked for a prize in
the box, but instead, I found a little leprechaun eating
some cereal. I stared at it, and the leprechaun kept on
eating. After a little while, the little leprechaun
noticed me holding him up. He was only a little toddler.
I let it eat a little more cereal and tucked him in bed
and he fell right to sleep. I let him sleep with my
American Girl doll. I took care of it as if I was the
leprechaun’s mom. The next morning, I checked for the
little leprechaun, but I couldn’t find it. I found it
once again stuffing cereal into his little mouth. Now
the leprechaun was a teenager but it was only an inch
taller than yesterday. It stared right into my eyes. I
asked if he could grant me just one wish. He said,
"Anything you say." I asked him if I could get any gold
to give to the homeless, orphanage, charity, and my
family to use. Instead of just a little, the leprechaun
gave me a big bag full of gold. I said "Thank you" and
let the leprechaun free. I gave some gold to the
homeless, orphanage, charity and the rest for my family.
One day, I was playing basketball when I saw a
rainbow. I began to follow the rainbow. When I was
walking, I saw my friend Chris and said "Chris do you
want to come and help me?" "Sure" said Chris. Finally
they reached the end of the rainbow. They both saw a
leprechaun. The leprechaun showed Chris and John to the
pot of gold. He couldn’t speak so that’s why he just led
them there. The little guy left because he had some
errands to do. Since Chris and John were alone they took
the gold, so they could buy really cool stuff from the
video game store. When the leprechaun came back he went
to see if the pot of gold was missing. Chris and John
already spent their gold. The leprechauns found Chris
and John and asked for their gold. But Chris and John
didn’t have the gold, so the leprechaun took the video
One day, I was walking along when I saw a rainbow. I
remembered my mom say, "At the end of every rainbow
there is a pot of gold". So I ran and ran and ran until
I saw a leprechaun. I have known all my life that
leprechauns are tricky. So I tricked him. I knew
leprechauns love bananas, so I told him in my backyard
there was a banana tree. He believed me! So I walked
toward the rainbow. There it was, the end of the
rainbow. There was a huge pot full of shining gold.
After I heaved the pot up into my hand, I heard a loud,
"You tricked me!" I saw the little leprechaun running
back to me. "I want bananas!!" cried the leprechaun. So
I went and gathered 12 bananas from my friend’s house. I
gave them to him. He was so happy he let me keep the pot
of gold even though it was his duty to let nobody take
it. I spend the pot of gold right away. I gave it to
charity. Then everyone lived happily ever after!
One St. Patrick’s day, I was walking home from school
and I heard some music in the bushes. I decided to go
and investigate. When I looked in the bushes, I gasped!
There in the middle of the bushes was a leprechaun! He
was not like leprechauns that I had read about in books.
He was barely bigger than my thumb. He had big round
eyes that were cloudy gray. His nose was short and plump
and his cheeks were bright red. His hair… his hair was
the most ridiculous thing I had ever seen! It was a
bright red and looked as if he had used hair gel to make
it stiff. All of a sudden, he looked at me and tumbled
backwards. While he was tumbling over, he bumped into a
big black pot and yelped "Me Gold!". I could not believe
it! Me, Nora Jasmine Potter actually found a leprechaun!
I was so excited. But I had to think fast. No way would
this tiny dude just let me take that gold without
arguing. And this dude seemed to love his gold. I sighed
and looked at the leprechaun again. "Me Gold!". I looked
at the gold again. There was so much in there anyone
could buy thirty ponies. "Look", I said, "I don’t want
to steal your gold." "You don’t want to?" "Wrong", I
thought. "Yeah, I don’t want to steal your gold!". "Nice
try" he said. "NO, I .. umm…." Then it hit me. "I just
want you to try a bite of my sardine sandwich." My
sardine sandwich was so bad it could knock anyone out!
Of course, I did not eat it at lunch today. I just ate
my chocolate cake and my yogurt. "Okay", he said. With
that I took out my lunchbox and gave him a little bite
of the sandwich. Uhhh! With that he fell to the ground.
"Brilliant!" I yelled and I grabbed the pot of gold and
ran away. Later, I treated my friends and I to ice cream
and a movie. That is the story of how I got my pot of
Once upon a time, I was at my house and wanted a pot
of gold. I opened a window and pretended that nobody was
home. Soon I heard a noise from the window. I thought it
was a leprechaun. I looked out. I guess he was hiding
because I didn’t see him. All I saw was a bucket. I
looked inside. There was a piece of gold. I picked it up
then I dropped it back in to put it away. But it just
doubled. It was amazing. I took those two pieces and
dropped them in. They doubled again. They kept doubling.
Until I had a big bucket of gold and that’s how I got a
pot of gold.
One St Patrick’s Day, I woke up late for the bus. I
ran down stairs but I missed it. I ate breakfast and
started to walk to school. But I tripped on a rock and
came face to face with a leprechaun! The leprechaun
started to run away, but I caught it! It kicked at me
with its little feet but I caught hold of those too. I
asked it, "Are you a real leprechaun?" "Yes I am " said
the leprechaun. "My name is Jim The Leprechaun". I
thought a moment then decided I would skip school. I
took him to my club house cave. I said, "Take me to a
pot of gold!" "I will give you a clue to where it is,"
said Jim. I lived in Florida so I thought that it was
going to be easy. "Here is my first clue," said Jim. "Go
to a place with white sand and your favorite climbing
tree". I thought, my favorite climbing tree is at the
west shore. So I went down a short path to the beach.
When I got there I ran over to my favorite tree. On it,
red shiny paint spelled P-A-R-K. "So I need to go over
to the park," I said to Jim. He nodded. So I went to the
park. I saw letters in the sand box and they spelled
F-A-R-M. I knew what that meant. There was a horse farm
up the hill. I ran up the road to the farm. Jim told me
that the second barn was where the third clue was. But
then I heard a loud "Poof" and I knew Jim was gone. This
must be the last clue. I ran into the first stall and
froze. A pile of gold spilled into my hands. As I lifted
it into the air, I noticed a big wheelbarrow and pilled
the gold into it. I ran home pushing the wheelbarrow. My
family is poor so I kept it for my family. Now we are
rich and live in a mansion with plenty of money.
One day I was in the rain forest when I found a pot
of gold. Then I went home and bought a money machine.
Then I bought a bank then I put one million dollars in
the bank. Then I bought some bodyguards. Then I bought a
mansion, and then I bought a secret underground base
with the navy. Then I bought the department of defense.
Then I bought IBM and MSN and IEE. Then I bought a
secret island. Then I bought a castle. Then I bought
every school in the world and destroyed them. Then I
bought every bank and moneymaking machine in the world.
Then I bought the world. But some people were on the
moon building a space station. Then they heard about the
news. Then they built a city on the moon. Then they made
suck pipes. Then they started to suck people up. But
then their pipes were destroyed. Then the world
It was a nice March day, and it was also
St Patrick’s Day. I had just woken up. I got up, got
dressed, and went downstairs. My mom had just made
pancakes. "Mmmm… my favorite". But today I wasn’t
hungry. I asked my mom, if I can go outside to play
basketball. She said, "yes". So I put my shoes on and
went outside. I didn’t have time to throw the ball, when
I hear a tiny voice saying, "I bet you want a pot of
gold." "Who.. who said that?" I asked startled and
almost frightened. "It’s me", the leprechaun said the
tiny voice again. "Did you ask me if I wanted a pot of
gold?" I said. "Yes I did." "Well if so, then give it to
me". "Wait we need a rainbow to appear, only then will I
be able to show you where I have hidden it". And as soon
as he said that a sudden rainbow appeared. "Now, I can
show you where I have hidden my pot of gold" said the
leprechaun. As he said that, he led me to a field near
the rainbow. Suddenly a roped tied around my foot and
before I knew it, I was hanging down from the tree. "Ha
Ha Ha, I’ve got you now! You will never get my gold".
But I was smart. I had a pocketknife in my pocket. I cut
the rope, caught the leprechaun, and forced him to tell
me where he had hidden his gold. I took the gold home
and from that time on, my house was always bright with

One day, I woke up. It was March, but I
didn’t know what day it was. It was March 17th!
Saint Patrick’s Day! I ran downstairs and opened the
door. Outside, there was a huge, large rainbow! I
wondered what was at the end.
Right before I closed the door, the doorbell rang! I
quickly opened the door and there in front on my own eye
was a shrunken real leprechaun! The leprechaun said in a
hurry "Come on! If you want to see what is at the end of
the rainbow, follow me!" And suddenly, I was lifted off
the flat ground and into the sky! Then, I flew through
the sky until I got on the rainbow!
The leprechaun said, "Slide down the rainbow and
you’ll see gold". "You’re kidding! There is a pot of
gold at the end of this?" I said in shock. Three seconds
later, the leprechaun pushed me down the rainbow. When I
was getting near the end, I landed in a BIG pot of gold!
"Take the gold home," said the leprechaun. "Do what
you want with it". I flew off the rainbow into Barnes
and Nobles. I donated 1,800 books to the orphanage. The
children loved to read so they read all the books in one
I was proud because I helped the orphans. I liked it
because I like reading and I gave to others. And it was
all because of a silly little leprechaun!
One day I was taking a walk. Poof!! A short
leprechaun came. "Hello", I said, "Look a tornado is
going to hit us!" This leprechaun turned around and I
stole his pot of gold. I sold this pot of gold for
$24,000550. With all the money I bought video games.
While I was trying out my video games someone knocked at
my door. When I opened it was a grumpy furious
leprechaun. He yelled, "You stole my money. Give it back
now. I am not getting fooled by you ever again". I said
in a small voice "What are you talking about?" He yelled
back "Don’t play games with me you fool! I want that pot
of gold now! It’s mine!!!!" I said, "Look old man, I
don’t know what you’re talking about". He yelled "You’re
still playing games with me!" SLAM!! I slammed the door.
The leprechaun yelled, "I’ll come back and get you
someday I swear!"
One day I was swinging. Waiting for my
friend. Then I saw something move
in the grass. There I went and found a
leprechaun! He was old but tiny. I
picked him up and he yelled put me down.
I didn’t not hear him because I
was thinking that he knew where a pot of
gold was so I asked him that and he
asked why do you want it. I answered so
I could give half to the poor and
the other half to support my family and
he said okay. He gave it and I took
half home and the other half to poor.
The money I had I took half of that
put it in my bank and gave the rest to my
mom and dad. I took a little
money and got a dog and other pets and
then I got supplies and got a pet for
my baby cousin. And then I sent some
money to India and gave it to my uncle
and grandparents. And I lived in a fun
live for the rest of my life. The
One day I ran into a leprechaun. I told him to lead me
to the pot of gold.
He said “Only if you can catch me! I ran as fast as I
could. Finally, he
stopped and said “I have no more energy
to run!” “So, do I get the pot of
gold?” I asked. “If you can answer this
question. Where do all the
leprechauns live? You have 5 minutes!”
I thought for a while, then I said
“In the sky, near the rainbow, so you are
near the pot of gold!” I said.
For a moment I thought the leprechaun
stopped breathing, but then I noticed
he was just staring at me. After 10
minutes of him staring at me I decided
to start talking. “Was I right? Do I
get the pot of gold?” I asked Mr.
Leprechaun. The leprechaun finally said
“You surely did! You were the
first one I ever met to get it right!” I
was really excited!
When I got home, I donated half of it to
the poor and the other half I
kept. The next day, I went to the mall.
I spent half of my share. I was
really happy and lived happily ever
after! The End.
One day, I was walking to
my friends house through the woods when I saw a
bright light. I glared at the light for
a few seconds and went on walking.
I thought to myself, “what could that
like be? Is someone there?” Me and
my friend Alex played for about an hour.
When I left it was about 5
o’clock. Right before I left Alex said,
“Show me that light.” “Ok,” I
replied. Halfway to the light we could
already see the glowing light. When
we got there the light was so bright it
hurt my eyes. Alex and I saw that
the light was in a bush. Alex slowly
pulled open the bush. All of a
sudden, a giant light beam came out and
made me and Alex jump back on the
ground. Me and Alex could not believe
our eyes. It was a pot of gold.
“What coincident. It’s Saint Patrick’s
day,” said Alex. Lex and I took
the pot to our tree house. We split the
total because we both found it.
Each of us got 659 gold coins. Alex
said, “I am going to spend my share on
toys.” I didn’t want toys so I said, “I
am going to give it to the poor.”
“What?! You crazy!” Alex shouted. I
took my share home and so did him.
The next morning I told my mom I wanted
to donate money. My mom said,
“sure.” I sent all of my gold in a
giant crate that almost weighed 300
pounds. 2 weeks later I received a
letter saying Thank You. You have saved
million doing this. I was so proud of
myself that day.
One day I was walking near
some bushes and I heard a rustle in one of the
bush that I was near. I peeked my head
through the bush. In the bush was a
little leprechaun and a big, huge, jumbo
pot of gold! I snatched up the
leprechaun up into the air. He had a
brown beard and and big blue eyes. He
also had a little green suit on with a
blue badge that said, The richest
Leprechaun in the state! I was really
excited about getting the pot of gold
and bringing it home. So I threw the
Leprechaun way into the fields. Then
I grabbed the pot of sparkling gold, and
ran all the way home dreaming of
what I could buy with all the gold!
Later that day my mom was going out to
do some errands. I asked her if I could
come, she said, “okay.” So I went
up to my bedroom and pulled out the pot
of gold that was under my bed and
put some in my pocket.
At the store I bought everything I had
been wishing for with the money.
Every day my mom went shopping I came and
got things with the pot of gold.
The good thing was I never rain out of
gold, so I was always rich and never
poor! I had the best life ever! The End!
One day I was at the end
of a rainbow when I saw a pot of gold. I looked
around to see if there were any
leprechauns around. I looked behind the pot
of gold, in the pot of gold and no
leprechauns so I thought I might as well
take the pot of gold with me. But right
when I was about to take the pot of
gold a leprechaun slid out of the rainbow
and said, “Hello we lad. If you
want my pot of gold you must figure out
my riddle. The sky is blue and the
grass is green, who is the one bigger
than you?” I answered “Ahhhh, you?”
“Correct!” He said. “You may take the
pot of gold.” He said. “Thanks,” I
said. “You’re welcome.” Then he
disappeared. Then I had to think of a
way to take this home. I went home and
got my skateboard and my dad and
went back to the gold. But when we got
there, there was only a small green
hat and a pair of small black shoes.
After that I never saw the leprechaun
again. The End.
I was walking when I saw
some rustling in the bushes. I looked in the
bushes and I saw a leprechaun! He was
short and chubby and had a long
orange beard. He was all dressed in
green and had elf like shoes, and a
green top hat sat on his head. I picked
him up and said “Gotchya!” The
leprechaun said “Are right,” with a
sigh. Now I have to lead you to my pot
of gold, he said. Me and the leprechaun
took a plane to Egypt and he led me
inside a pyramid, and led me to a pot of
gold. I brought it home with me
and bought a mansion! I also bought
every toy in the world! The rest I
gave to my friends. The End!
Once I was walking in a
place my mom told me not to go called the Hollow
Grave. I found a leprechaun sitting on a
tree trunk. I snuck up on it and
caught it. It was really really scared.
I was forcing it to tell me where
the pot of gold was. But it kept saying,
“no” or “never.” Finally I said,
“tell me or else I will tell people where
I found you so people can find
other like you.” At that instant he told
where his gold was. He told me it
was under the big oak in my back yard.
He said, “Now will you let me go?”
I said, “No I need to make sure you are
telling me the truth.” So I went to
that place and it was there. I bought a
gameboy DS (Double Screen) and a
PSP (a Playstation Portable). Then I
gave the rest to the poor.
Once I was in the park. I
heard some noise in the bushes. I looked behind
the bushes. There, I saw a leprechaun.
He was very small. He was wearing
green pants, a green shirt, and a little
green hat. Right behind him was a
huge pot of gold. I grabbed the gold and
ran away. I gave some of the gold
to charity, and I kept the rest. I
bought a mansion and a swimming pool.
Then I gave some gold to my friends. 2
months later, I went to bed. The
leprechaun came in my mansion, and stole
the gold from me. I found out the
next morning. That night I found the
leprechaun sleeping. I put him in a
iron cage, and took the gold, then ran
off. And I lived happily ever after.
One day I was jogging full
of energy, because yesterday it rained all day
long. I wondered what a rainbow would
feel like, so I ran to the end of a
rainbow. When I reached there I saw a
small, bearded, leprechaun! I
threatened to hurt it unless it showed me
where the pot of gold was. He
told me, and I found it. I was very
happy that day. I thought, first I
would sell it for money on Ebay. Then I
would go and get all of my family
presents, and of course I would be left
with the remainder and I would be
able to get anything I wanted. The End.

It was a dark stormy day,
but everyone was still happy, because it was
Saint Patrick’s Day! While me and my
sister were hunting for a leprechaun,
we heard a big THUD! All of a sudden
everything went black. “Dang!” I
said, “The power went out!” All of a
sudden we heard a laugh. It sounded
like this “He...He! He! HEE! Ha! Ha!
Ha! Wopee!” “That was the
leprechaun!” I exclaimed. “It was?”
asked my sister, she seemed worried.
By the time the storm stopped and the
power came back on, all that was left
was a trail of clovers. I followed the
clovers. The clovers took me all
the way to Ireland! In Ireland I saw a
big rainbow! So I followed it.
There was a huge pot of gold! First I
bought the motorcycle I always
wanted. What should I do with the rest?
