Item Description...
Although favored by their king, his charitable wife, and their peace-loving son, ungrateful villagers turn away and bring disaster upon themselves, then, repent and ask the queen to intervene when they have nothing left.

Publishers Description
With exquisite artwork and evocative text, this original fable explores the events of Jesus' life, and demonstrates the role of the Virgin Mary as the benevolent agent of God's people. Reduced to desolation by a king and prince who feel they have been wronged, the residents of a once-favored village must seek help from the queen, a native of their devastated town. Religious subjects are presented clearly in an allegorical style that proves entertaining, and also serves to provide children with examples of virtue and good behavior.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Falls short of Nobisso's "The Weight of a Mass"  May 17, 2010
While my children and I enjoyed this book, it is not at all as captivating as "The Weight of a Mass," Nobisso and Szegedi's other collaboration. I get what they were going for, but the book probably could have used some reworking before publication. The story seems a little disjointed and the illustrations don't quite measure up to those in the other book. Still a nice book, but not as satisfying and magical as I had hoped.
Mixed Feelings  Nov 15, 2009
There is no doubt about the fact that this book has exquisite illustrations. The story is okay. It is chock-full... and even chokingly-full of Marian allegories.

It just seemed too contrived. As if trying to put every single allegory known to man in every single detail of this book. And most of it is way over children's heads anyway. It was even over my own, well-catechized head!

I love, love, love "The Weight of a Mass"... it's simple without being preachy. But this one, I don't know... just seems like it's trying too hard. Such a shame though, because the pictures deserve a more engaging, CLEAR text...
wonderful reading  May 13, 2009
Definetely a wonderful reading for children and even adults. The ilustrations are marvelous. I enjoyed evey page.
Janette Malavet
Clear, easy to understand allegory beautifully illustrated.  Apr 20, 2009
Not only is it easy to understand the allegory of this story, but the allegory does what it should by simplifying a deeper truth. My kids were especially moved when the good prince came to help the village and was attacked by the people who had turned away from the king. We also liked how the villagers turned for help to the queen because she was "one of us." A beautiful and engaging way to teach catechism to children.
A wonderful book to teach the role of our Blessed Mother  Feb 24, 2009
What a wonderful, scripturally-based story to teach the role and importance of our Blessed Mother. An excellent read for the entire family.
