In honor of Saint Francis of Assissi, here is the book posted today on the PopeStNickV list:
The Adventures of Lupio by Jean-Francois Kieffer
44 pages, Ignatius Press (November 30, 2010)
From the publisher:
In the days of knights and castles lived an adventurous young troubadour named Lupio.
Orphaned and on his own in 13th century Italy, plucky Loupio meets Brother Francis of Assisi and his friend Brother Wolf, and so begins a new life of joyfully trying to do good, while still getting by in a dangerous world.
The youthful and colorful comic- book style presents to young readers the exciting challenges of growing up in the Middle Ages, which often look very like the challenges of growing up in any age. Like the Tin Tin and Asterixcomics, this series, never before available in English, is sure to entertain young readers. But more than that, the seeds of faith, hope and charity taking root in Loupio, might grow in their hearts too.
