Patron Saint of Ireland

Tomie de Paola

Softbound, Large Format


There is a sacred simplicity to Tomie de Paola’s art when he writes of saints and goodness. This quality shines forth in Patrick. With an abundance of green and blue, just like the Emerald Isle, both de Paola’s pictures and his words recreate the life of Patrick from his boyhood as a lonely shepherd whose solitude gifted him with a mystical and personal relationship with God, to the Saint who brought healing and unity to the Irish people. This is a story that will be loved by children 6 to 9 and beyond.
