Print Test (Only the test content will print)
In Irish Legend, leprechauns are fairies. They take the form of old men wearing little green coats. Leprechauns like to get into a lot of mischief, or play tricks. When they're not making mischief, leprechauns spend their time making shoes. They take the money they earn from making shoes and hide it in a pot of gold which is hidden at the end of a rainbow.
Leprechauns also have magic powers. If a leprechaun is captured by a human, then it will grant the human three wishes. By granting the three wishes, the leprechaun gets the human to agree to let it go. Humans must wish carefully since leprechauns are known for being tricky.
