Described by USA Today as “dazzling” and “captivating” The Secret of Kells was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2010.  It tells the story of a sheltered boy named Brendan who begins an adventure when a master illuminator arrives from foreign lands with an ancient but unfinished book of secret wisdom.  Brendan wants to help complete the exceptional book, but there is danger along the way….
