Joyce A. Stengel

Dear Reader:


When I sat down to write about St. Patrick driving the very last snake from Ireland, Tulla mouse popped out from behind a mushroom and said, "I want to be in the story."

"Why?" I asked.

Tulla twitched her whiskers. "Well, for sure ye know snakes eat mice!" With that, she scampered onto my pages and into my heart.

Soon, Tulla and her brothers, Ryan and Brian, were caught up in an exciting, dangerous, suspenseful adventure. They delighted me with their bravery and success, as they did St. Patrick himself.

Have fun! Put on your mouse ears, read the book and follow with a Readers Theatre Script, available in my Educator's Guide at Included are tie-ins to St. Patrick's Day.
