Patrick's life story is greatly simplified for children, but covers the essentials, and is illustrated in a style reminiscent of ancient times.
DePaola includes an afterward about his childhood visits to his Irish grandparents (his mother's parents). The book was a response to his mother's request.

(PS: St. Patrick was a Welshman.) ( )

Beloved children's book author-illustrator Tomie dePaola recounts the life of Saint Patrick—from his noble birth in Britain, to his captivity in Ireland, to the visions which led him to return and found the first Christian church in Ireland.

This book was a great read, and it was extremely easy to follow. It was about a young farmer kidnapped and sold as a slave. In his time of slavery he prayed to god, and found god within him. This book would be a great teaching example for morals. ( )

This book talks about Saint Patrick and the struggles that he endured being sold into slavery and how he escaped by the power of God.
