About the book:
‘‘There was a wise woman, we’re all agreed,
some call her Brigid, some call her Bríd.
She grew up kind and she liked a joke
and she always wore a wee small cloak.’

A miserly king is no match for a smart young woman in this lively retelling of the beloved Irish legend of Brigid and her miraculous cloak. Award-winning poet and songwriter Catherine Ann Cullen’s words are brought to life in glowing illustrations by Katya Swan. Read the story and learn to sing The Song of Brigid’s Cloak!
