Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The beloved saint gets colorful treatment from Demi, who retells his biography at length, beginning at the beginning, when Francis was born in a stable in Assisi in 1182. Francis's early life gets extended treatment, with the depiction of medieval military scenes. Those unfamiliar with the details of Francis's life — he is credited with beginning the use of a Nativity scene to commemorate Christmas — will find it in edifying visual detail, including Francis's legendary encounter with the wolf of Gubbio. The narrative can be repetitive, but it provides a great excuse for the compelling visuals. Even the end papers are lavishly illustrated, with parade-like ranks of animals along with the words to Francis's prayers, including the Canticle of the Sun. As usual, Demi's mixed-media illustrations feature intricate decorative borders, along with lots and lots of animals. A visual feast and tribute to a Christian figure said to have lived like Jesus. Ages 6 — up. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
