Publisher's Summary

An illustrated tribute to the Irish patron saint from the best-selling author of Quiet, Strega Nona, and many others.

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.

This timeless picture book is a perfect introduction to these important Irish legends, and an ideal St. Patrick's Day gift— perfect for sharing with your family.
