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.

Review:
Praise for the picture book edition, Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland

"Fans of the prolific dePaola's heartfelt celebrations of religious themes will welcome this handsome picture-book biography. His signature style is well showcased here and, as he did in The Lady of Guadalupe, dePaola effectively integrates both the tones and design elements of (in this case) Celtic art into his renderings. . . . Readers will particularly enjoy the addition of five legends about St. Patrick, including the snakes and the shamrock. This well-designed entry has perennial appeal."--Publishers Weekly

"DePaola's rich colors are somewhat muted here, and beautifully balanced; the whole effect is decorative, reverent, and serene. Five legends appear at the end, each succinctly stated and with a single illustration--a good way to differentiate between the historical and the apocryphal. An excellent contribution."--Kirkus Reviews

"The colors are rich and warm, and the gestures and expressions speak of elemental drama, exaggerated and yet formalized, and with occasional playful detail. . . . In a final cheerful note, dePaola remembers himself as a young child seeing a 'very colorful statue' of Saint Patrick and the snakes when his Irish maternal grandfather took him to church in Connecticut. The joy of those memories can be felt in this picture book." --Booklist
