Reviews - What do customers think about More Once upon a Time Saints?
Whimsical introduction to the saints Mar 29, 2001
This book is a compendium of brief lives of the saints told in the manner of fairy tales. The approach has the advantage of capturing and holding the attention of young readers (it did mine). The author is an excellent storyteller and in a marvelous way is able to capture the spirit and personality of each individual saint. No child who reads this book will ever hold the stereotype of saints as pious bores!
Christian Fairy Tales Mar 27, 2000
Lives of the Saints books are common to many Catholics, but this book adds a delightful twist by telling the stories in the manner of fairy tales. My children have enjoyed them immensely although the dividing line between real and legend is sometimes hard to tell.
