Publishers Description
Caryll Houselander is best known for the intensity of her vision of the suffering Christ and His immeasurable love for us, a theme that she frequently spoke of with breathtaking luminosity in her many books about Him.

Few know, however, of the many remarkable stories she wrote for Catholic children -- delightful tales that are simple but not shallow. Indeed, like her books for adults, they manifest a tender love of Christ and His little ones not commonly found among us these days.

Here are twelve of Houselander's best tales, charmingly illustrated with Renee George's lively drawings of pirates and princesses, castles and kings.

Through the tale of Jack and Jim, even young children will grasp the meaning of Christ's suffering; in Racla the Gypsy, they'll discover the charity which is at the heart of the Eucharist; in the The Cure's Guest, they'll see how Christ makes up for the sins of others.

Other stories touch on other Catholic themes, but these tales are not really catechetical. Yes, they do take for granted that Catholicism plays a large role in the lives of these children, especially prayer and the Mass. But they do something more . . . and more important.

Tale after tale introduces children to the tender love that Jesus has for each of them, and to the fire of love for Him that can burn in the heart of Catholics -- even in the hearts of little ones like themselves.

There is no better gift you can give to a young child.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good gift!  Dec 28, 2006
The stories in this book are great stories that interest and inspire the reader. Charming, sweet and yet all with good humour and without any irreverence, this book makes an excellent gift for birthdays, Christmas, or if you home educate like me, it's a great book to just have and read at story time in class. It's style is simple and yet entertaining, and the age guide for 9-12 years is good but it could be read aloud to children as young as 4, depending on their attention span. As an adult, I thoroughly enjoyed it and learned from it. Hope others enjoy it as much as my family has!
 
Great Gift  May 15, 2006
This was the perfect communion gift for my niece. It is a wonderful way to begin, or enhance, a youngster's spiritual library. Cheryl Dickow, author, "Raising Christian Children in a Secular World."
 
You can do better then this....  Jan 20, 2006
Everytime I read these stories I have to skip sentences that are not appropriate or are violent, such as "he liked to dwell on the arms and legs he had cut off wiht a rusty saber..." I guess if your children are watching public television, the content with be nothing new. If, however, you are trying to protect your younger children from concepts like violence and sorcery, move on....
 
Priceless!  Apr 17, 2004
We use this book as a bedtime read aloud. Each story takes about 10-15 min. to read aloud. My kids, ages 3-14, never tire of hearing the stories. They are well written, moving, enjoyable and character-building all at the same time. Each story has a beautiful message without being preachy. And the heroes and heroines are children. Highly recommended!
