Praise

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
