St. Patrick And The Three Brave Mice

In this entertaining children's tale, St. Patrick has driven the snakes out of Ireland, but one crafty, clever snake escaped.

When I first saw St. Patrick and The Three Brave Mice, I thought how wonderful it would be to review this book with St. Patrick's Day coming up! That was in January and it's already here! This book is the perfect way to introduce the story of the real St. Patrick to your children and maybe help answer some questions on why many people of Irish decent (or not) celebrate this holiday. As with many children's books, there is a lesson to be learned as well, and Joyce does a fantastic job weaving a tale that will keep the attention of even your littlest reader. Because, as you will soon see, it doesn't matter how big you are, but what you can do when you put your mind to it and follow your heart.One night while Tulla Mouse just can't sleep, she leaves the nest where her two brothers Ryan and Bryan lay sound asleep. Tulla is looking at the beautiful moon rising high while cuddled up in a single leaf listening to the sounds of night when out of the darkness she hears a very loud snore coming from a man fast asleep under the tree. Not only that, she sees a glowing bell resting by this man's side and immediately wonders if it could be the "Real St. Patrick" with his miraculous bell. You see, St. Patrick rang his bell and rid Ireland of all the snakes. Well...all except one VERY clever snake that escaped the sound.With Tulla Watching, that night the snake decides to stuff the bell with grass and steal it! No more ringing would be very good for this sneaky snake. Tulla as small as she is shows that size doesn't matter when she runs to the nest to wake Ryan and Bryan to concoct a plan and get that bell back to St. Patrick! Like most brothers, not too happy to be woken up, blame it on a "nightmare" or Tulla's "imagination".
