"Such a warm book about expression of religion. "Every night before dinner, Pequele and his grandmother would kneel down to pray before the angel Pequele's mother had left them. They would give thanks for each other and, as Pequele's grandmother would say, "for the warmth and light inside us, which is all simple folks like ourselves can understand of God's mysterious ways." (J 398.244 Ac77)"

Picture Book- A cute story about a boy who takes the plague out of a city by performing acrobats.
Beautiful, melancholy re-telling of a 13th century French folktale. The illustrations are lovely.

Gave me goosebumps when I read it. This is a children's book.
