 General Description:

James A. Janda

Who has not heard of St. Patrick's Day? It's the day of the "wearing of the green!" Stores sell shamrocks and clover, there are parades and celebrations, and in every school .cross the United States, youngsters and adults wear something green on St. Patrick's Day. But few know the actual story about this remarkable man.

Open the pages of this enchanting book and learn about the man who lives in the hearts of all the Irish. Did you know that Patrick was a Roman citizen? Or that he was captured by the Celts and made a slave for six years? Or that he managed to escape from being a slave and later became a priest and a bishop? Did you know that he returned to Ireland because of a dream?

Author James Janda has delightfully blended Patrick's actual words from his autobiography with the legends about him - just enough for young readers to learn about the life of this exceptional man.
