Reviews and Kudos

"...the challenges ("puzzles") that Patrick faced...and how he solved them. The vocabulary is simple enough for children in the early inspiring tale of a man whose religious and cultural contributions to Ireland are immeasurable."

Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer

"...a most enjoyable children's biography...Both the story and illustrations are wonderful... full of historical information and not too long for children to read. This book beautifully and creatively describes the life of St. Patrick."
