Item description for A Saint and His Lion: The Story of Tekla of Ethiopia by Elaine Murray Stone...

The story of how a crippled boy went on to become Ethiopia's best-known saint. Full-color illustrations. Ages 4-8.

Publishers Description
Born in a tiny village to simple farmers in Ethiopia, Tekla was marked from birth to be someone special. However, after a fall from a tree crippled him, he seemed to have no future. Despite his disability, Tekla longed to become a priest. On his way to study at a monastery, he encountered a wounded lion. Overcoming his fear, he bandaged the lion's paw and continued on his journey. His kindness was repaid when later this very same lion not only spared his life, but invited him to mount on his back so that he could transport him. The two set out to convert the wild Galla tribesmen to the Christian faith. Tekla's story of persistence, kindness, and courage, set in the exotic background of 13th-century Ethiopia, will capture the attention of young children, as well as those who read to them.

beautifully illustrated  Oct 17, 2007
My kids love the story. We are adopting from Ethiopia and wanted to begin teaching our children a bit about Ethiopian culture and history.
This is a lavishly illustrated children's book  Mar 8, 2004
The editorial review fails to mention that this is a lavishly illustrated picture book, with the drawings by Cecile Sharratt, who also illustrated Shalinar's Song, also published by Paulist Press.
