Saint Francis of Assisi
Author/Artist: Joyce Denham
St Francis, the patron saint of animals, is particularly remembered for his gentle and caring deeds towards his world and those who shared it with him. His vibrant faith inspired many others to follow his example os a life filled with consideration.
Set in the medieval countryside surrounding Assisi, this book invites you to step into his world, beautifully rcreated in words and pictures.
The life of St Francis is copiously recorded in several near-contemporary biographies of him. From these, is drawn an account of his astonishingly influential life as a devoted follower of Jesus. This book skilfully weaves together the historical narrative with memorable stories such as the "Wolf of Gubbio" and the "Sermon to the Birds" to create a book that can be enjoyed as a whole or tackled in shorter episodes. The result is an inspiring and heartwarming book.
Illustrated by Elena Temporin.
