Patrick, Patron Saint of Ireland


Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to you all!

Overall, I like this cover depicting everyone’s favorite slave-turned-missionary miracle worker. The placement of the walking cane’s crook behind his head is both awkward and dangerous-looking. But I love the snake coiled around the end of the rod.

Tomie dePaolo has made a long career of introducing kiddos to historical figures through his books and this seems (judging by the cover) to do an adequate job.

Also, lots of green. And I do like green.
