|aWhen Roy G. Biv, a leprechaun, appears and asks Colleen's help in saving the St. Patrick's Day parade, she offers items of different colors to rebuild his lost rainbow, but is reluctant to part with a special gift from her grandfather.
It’s raining, and Colleen is sad. How can her grandfather play his bagpipes in the St. Patrick’s Day parade? His music is so beautiful it makes people laugh and cry at once. Suddenly, a leprechaun appears before her. He says he can make the sun come out by creating a rainbow - but to build its colors, Colleen must give up the thing she holds most dear.A note at the end explains the science of rainbows and the Roy G. Biv naming tradition.
