I love stories like this, where history meets legend and quality storytelling.

This was a library sale find, and at first I thought it would go to my Little Free Library, but instead I think I'll hold onto this one for a while. ( )

There is a lot packed into this picture book biography of Columba, an Irish saint. It's an interesting story, but I wonder who the intended audience is. Though it's a picture book, with some pretty remarkable illustrations, I don't see a child being interested in sitting still long enough to listen to (or read) even just one of these text-heavy pages.
