Here’s a simple biography, in picture book format, of Columcille,
a monk of old Ireland. He lived during the Dark Ages and is responsible
for preserving many books through that time. This story is told
simply and beautifully. Instead of being shelved with the picture
books, you’ll find it with the biographies. Worth looking for.
