This is the PDF digital download version of the Paddy and the Wolves coloring book. It includes all the text and bonus material from Paddy and the Wolves: A Story about Saint Patrick When He Was a Boy, but with black-and-white line art so that children can color the story of Paddy’s adventures, too. The line art was hand-drawn by award-winning Catholic folk artist Jen Norton.
Young Paddy can’t sit still during morning prayers, but he’s more than happy to help the shepherd, Barra, watch sheep for the day! But who will watch Paddy when he wanders into the woods? As he explores the wilderness of Roman Britain, Paddy encounters many delights and dangers–and ultimately, the One who watches over him through it all.
In Paddy and the Wolves, author Steve Nagel imagines St. Patrick as a young boy, weaving a story that uses the saint’s childhood adventures to foreshadow elements of the saint’s adult life.
The coloring book includes four pages of bonus material, including a recipe for Paddy’s oatcake, biographical information about Saint Patrick, the text of The Lorica of St. Patrick, and a simple board game based on the story.
