About the Author

Padraic Colum (1881-1972) was an Irish poet, novelist, dramatist, biographer, playwright, children's author and collector of folklore. He was one of the leading figures of the Irish Literary Revival. Colum took up children's writing in America and published a number of collections of stories for children, beginning with The King of Ireland's Son. He also translated an Irish folk tale from Gaelic because he did not want to forget the language.
