Want to dress like the Pope? Well, why not? After all, the Pope is one of the most important people in the world, and gets invited to state dinners and stuff like that, and lives in an ornate place called the Vatican.

Next to Godliness Apr 13, 2007
If you are seeking a searing look at the Catholic Church in a turbulent world, look elsewhere. This is just a light-hearted look at the art of looking good when you are the representative of God on earth. It's especially good if you imagine the words being read in an Italian (or German) accent. The most controversial issue addressed here is NO SANDALS! (Okay, they were fine for that St. Francis of Assisi fellow, but this is The Pope talking!) The book is filled with enjoyable bits like the Importance of the Sceptre Stick, of It's Always Nice to Wear A Lot of Rings, of Why You Need the Tall, Pointy Hat, and the like. Good table manners are vital when you are The Pope, dont want to get your white robes soiled. The pictures are wonderfully silly and in keeping with the text; there's a charming one of The Pope on his afternoon constitutional, complete with his papal ice-cream-cone of gelato, and a patient cardinal following behind with a sunshade. (The pictures do resemble a mischievious Benedict, but maybe that's just me.) The author, Daniel Handler, may be better known as the "contact" for Lemony Snicket and his wonderful tales of gloom, sorrow, and misery. A gentle bit of irreverence that may poke fun at the church, but is never mean.
Brand Name Appeal... Feb 8, 2007
Good Lord! Because this site has mislabled this book, and credited the illustrator as author, no one seems to realize it's by Daniel Handler, a.k.a. LEMONY SNICKET. Therefore, no one is reading it; therefore, no one is praising it for being hysterically funny, clever, wry -- all the things Handler is. Another indication that quality won't out in this market unless it's attached to a brand name. Wake up, people! This is a hoot!
