Saint Patrick

by Tomie dePaola

From the author of Strega Nona and Quiet comes the story of the shepherd who heard the voice of God and brought Christianity to the Irish people--now in a special format just right for the youngest readers.

Beloved children's book author-illustrator Tomie dePaola recounts the life of Saint Patrick--from his noble birth in Britain, to his captivity in Ireland, to the visions which led him to return and found the first Christian church in Ireland.

With his signature bold illustrations and engaging prose, Tomie dePaola recounts a number of legends about the Saint--including the well-known story of how he drove the snakes from Ireland, and his association with the shamrock, as well as less familiar details of his journeys.

This timeless story, now available in a sturdy, colorful board book format, is a perfect introduction to these important Irish legends, and an ideal St. Patrick's Day gift-- perfect for sharing with your family.
