Item description for The Little Jester by Helena Olofsson...

Outline ReviewWhen a little jester appears, cold and hungry, at the doors of a French monastery a thousand years ago, he is almost turned away by the abbot. But another monk implores him to let the boy in, and soon the jester is sitting at the monks' dining table, eating to his heart's content. And what better way to thank his hosts than to give them a little show? Soon, the jester is making music and dancing and juggling on the high altar of the church, right below the beautiful painting of the weeping Madonna. When the abbot discovers this sacrilege, he is outraged. But he and all the monks are about to discover the kind of miracle a little laughter and generosity of spirit can create. In this unusual and satisfying story, Swedish author and illustrator Helena Olofsson captures the medieval flavor of the time with a timeless message. Readers will be fascinated by the setting and charmed by the antics of the little jester. (Ages 5 to 7) --Emilie Coulter

Product Description
A little jester brings about big change

When the world was a thousand years younger and minstrels traveled the roads, there was a monastery in the French countryside. The monks who lived there made books in which they painted lovely pictures. But the most beautiful picture, to them, was the painting of the weeping Madonna above the
altar. One evening a jester boy comes to the monastery and is offered shelter. To thank the monks, he begins to juggle and dance. The stern Abbot wants to throw him out for disrespectful behavior, but soon the monks notice that something wonderful has happened. It is nothing less than a miracle, and one that will change the monastery -- and the weeping Madonna -- forever.

Blending medieval and modern pictorial language, Helena Olofsson's warmhearted story, accompanied by beautiful, distinctive illustrations, is about the transformative power of laughter and creativity.
