GraceAnne A. DeCandidoIn the mouth-filling cadences of Gaelic, with some of the more difficult words made clear in context, Schmidt tells the story of the sixth-century Irish saint Ciaran. . . . The sweet legends of Ciaran's life -the star that fell into his mother's mouth, the bell that rang when he reached his destination, and more- are woven into the story. Ciaran matures from beautiful boy to grizzled elder in Todd Doney's rich, fully realized oil paintings, rendered in a beautiful impressionist technique. . . . A beautiful picture book for older children.
