    One thought on “The Wolf and the Shield: An Adventure with Saint Patrick”

    1. The Wolf and the Shield is a short and charming children s book that can easily be read aloud in a few sittings When I first saw it advertised, I assumed it was a book about Saint Patrick himself Later I spotted the name of the series, Friends with the Saints, which struck me as a delightful twist and made me even eager to read it I loved the idea of a child in this case, a boy named Kieran meeting a saint and having his life changed by the encounter Of course Saint Patrick makes cameo appearan [...]
