Item description for Once upon a Time Saints by Ethel Pochocki & Tom Matt...

Relates briefly the lives and deeds of nineteen saints including Germaine, Swithin, Clement, and Bridgid

Publishers Description
"These stories," the author explains, "are meant to show human and lovable people whose mysterious passion for God led them into preposterous escapades." With an eye on the taste of a child for concrete detail and no apologies for "the embroidery of legend," each tale, in a style akin to fairy-tale, sets forth the unique qualities of a Genevieve, a Felix, a Dorothy, or Comgall--16 real saints brought unforgettably to our attention and admiration.

Beautiful short stories  Feb 8, 2008
I didn't have a chance to review this book before ordering so I was expecting a picture book with glossy pages and colorful illustrations. Even though the pages are not colorful, the stories make up for it. Nice black and white illustrations.
My husband can't put this book down - BEST SAINT story book  Jul 2, 2007
My husband and I have shared the bedtime story routine for many years, but in the past year his work schedule had him giving that opportunity primarily to me. That was, until this book. He has now become the only bedtime story reader! In fact, I would often catch him reading the "next saint" after the children went to bed. The stories are fascinating and inspiring. Often the children (9 & 10yo) request a story repeated again and again.

Despite reading many saint story books over the years, I had never heard of most of these saint stories. I also have saint books that have sat on the shelf as they were too dry (born this year, known for this ...) for the children. However, this book is ALIVE and told in an engaging "storytellers" fashion. My children even request we read the stories to their friends when they are visiting.

I anticipated the need, as they were getting close to the end of the book, and ordered the sequel book BEFORE they finished this one; my husband and the children were very grateful (actually almost relieved - they didn't want it to end).

The only negative is that these books are so wonderful we are spoiled forever; we cannot wait till a third book is published and hope it is very soon!
It couldn't get better...  Oct 17, 2004
I read this, a saint at a time, to my 5 and 8 year old sons at bedtime. They loved it and want more, more, more. The eight year old proposed the title of this review. I liked it because the saints are not saccharin but they are hereos of virtue and the author makes them touchable. I'm at this site now to order the sequel.
