It seems to me, you took a bunch of fairy tales and threw them together. It is fun to pretend. That is one of the benefits of being a child.

Wow, Carol - a REAL fairy story if ever I read one!
Quite enchanting, and with such believable dialogue between the two girls. This had every ingredient a fairy story could possibly need. I loved the mix of real and pretend, rather than having the piece just set in the past.
I didn't notice any nits, though personally I would not have written "Robin" with a capital, as it is a species rather than a name. But it's no issue really.
Great entry, as we have come to expect from you.
Best wishes. Sally

Oh, what a terrific tale. For some time you transported me into wonderland with these two little girls and I was thoroughly lost in all the beauty. Wonderfully told, Smiles. I love tales with Frankie in them.
Thanks for sharing. Best wishes for the contest. luv jada

I really liked this! Your words painted such a vivid picture. I could see all the things the two litle girls could see. An enchanting tale. Very enjoyable, and you don't have to be a child to enjoy it.

    Awesome...I am so thrilled that others enjoy the little leprechaun as much as I do. He lifts my spirits every time I write a story about him. Thank you so much for the awesome review. Smiles to you..Carol

This one was, well..., magic. You just did an amazing job here. The story flowed and spilled over with imaginative imagery. The dialogue moved cleanly. You managed to pull off the Leprechan's accented speech without it either sounding stilted or being difficult to read. The children were believable. This would make an enjoyable bedtime story for any child.
Really an excellent job.
