Product description

A powerful historical story brought alive by a best-loved writer and illustrator. It’s 1963, and the great American president John F. Kennedy is visiting Ireland, his ancestral home. He’ll later describe his visit as the best four days of his life – and for a generation of Irish people, it was an event they never forgot. In County Wexford a young boy, Patrick, is caught up in the fevered excitement of his home town. More than anything, he wonders how it would feel to shake the President’s hand…

  • A warm-hearted picture book rooted in real history
  • Written by top TV and radio broadcaster Ryan Tubridy
  • With dazzling artwork by master illustrator P.J. Lynch
  • A powerful tale that marks the centenary of JFK’s birth
