Product Details


Lynch captures the narrative’s fevered tone in splendidly realistic scenes of close-packed crowds and excited pale faces. Kennedy looks suitably tall, grand, and genial, and Patrick is the very picture of freckle-faced concentration as he slices a Swiss roll and offers it to the great man…meeting the president is always going to be a memorable moment, whoever’s holding the office.
—Kirkus Reviews

The text is pleasant and quietly touching. The softly hued illustrations, expertly rendered in watercolor, help to enhance the text…A lovely introduction to a former U.S. president from a unique historical perspective. Consider for U.S. history and biography collections.
—School Library Journal

It’s an uplifting imagined episode that reflects the way an encounter with fame can energize an entire community. An afterword delves into the details of Kennedy’s visit, including the itinerary of his trip.
—Publishers Weekly

It’s a story and a book that deserves to be read and reread by every Irish and Irish American child for generations to come.
—Irish Voice
