 Our Description

Francesca, a roach, and Martin, a skunk, originally met in a trash can awhile back: He'd startled her by rising from the garbage, wearing a cap of coleslaw and a mustache of yogurt. Francesca had always been warned about churches. They were too clean, barren of food, and they were dangerous. As the St. Francis Blessing of the Animals approaches, Francesca wants to go, but Martin warns her against it: "I don't think that we are meant to be included, Francesca. It's for the respectables, the cute and cuddlies. We are outcasts. They'll never let us in. Can't you just hear the humans shrieking as we walk down the aisle? They'd be fainting left and right."

With illustrations by the acclaimed Barry Moser, kids and adults alike will treasure this story about how all of God's creation has value, purpose, and blessing.

Ethel Pochocki was the author of several other books for children and adults, including Once Upon a Time SaintsBarry Moser is one of the most acclaimed illustrators alive today.
