Item Description...
The value of all creatures is told in this story of a roach and a skunk who find a creative way inside a church to join the Celebration of Creatures service in this children's story.

Publishers Description
As a young roach, Francesca was warned against churches:
Her mother had told her there was no reason to visit such a place. Churches were disgustingly clean, barren of food, although sometimes you might find leftover rice from weddings under the pews, and they were dangerous.
Francesca and Martin, a skunk, originally met in a trash can awhile back:
He had startled her by rising from the garbage, wearing a cap of coleslaw and a mustache of yogurt.
""Good evening, Miss," he said, remembering his manners. "My name is Martin. After the saint, Martin de Porres. My mother favored him. His statue was in the garden where we ate, so she named me, her firstborn, after him.""
As the Celebration of Creatures service approaches, Francesca yearns to be there, but Martin warns her against it:
""I don't think that we are meant to be included, Francesca. It's for the respectables, the cute and cuddlies. We are outcasts, my dear. They'll never let us in. Can't you just hear the humans shrieking as we walk down the aisle? They'd be fainting left and right.""
Francesca and Martin find a creative way into the church--and what a sight they see Kids and adults alike will treasure this new story about the value of all creatures, and will learn anew that all of creation has value, purpose, and God's blessing.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Enchanting story  Jan 6, 2009
This is a dear and sweet book, wonderfully illustrated and creatively written, the point of the story is a great lesson not to be missed.
Barry Moser's work: A sight to behold!  Mar 1, 2008
A delightful story by Ethel Pochoki filled with the imagined settings and words of the animal kingdom. The engraved illustrations by Barry Moser show a master artist and illustrator at his best. Fine detail is revealed in every curving line wonderfully composed and skillfully executed in the challenging medium of block engraving. Subtle and vivid colors are used with sparing grace. A storybook to read again and again. A terrific combination of word and picture.
Ehhhhh ...  Dec 7, 2007
The illustrations are magnificent and the theme is wonderful. We have a blessing of the pets at our school on the feast of St. Francis. I thought the students would enjoy this story, but the ending is disappointing.
