 Our Description

Caryll Houselander

Here are tales of pirates and princesses, castles and kings - tales of Catholic boys and girls to remind you that miracles really happen and love is stronger than death.  You'll meet:

  • Benji, the shepherd who gives his cloak to a child and winds up face-to-face with Jesus;
  • Anthony, who sets out to be a priest but ends up on a pirate ship where miracles happen;
  • Vaslav, a child in a Soviet labor camp, who carries the Host and converts a guard;
  • Racla, the little gypsy who dances for old Fr. Filipesco and discovers the meaning of love;
  • Marie Angele, who learns from a simple old cure how Jesus makes up for our failings; and
  • Joseph, who makes sacrifices for his godfather that draw the old man back into the Church.

Rich men, poor men, priests, nuns, and farmers: all are here with good Catholic children who fill these pages with prayers and fun, bringing delight to Jesus and happiness to all who meet them.
