Synopsis

The Legend of Saint Nicholas by Anselm Grun

A beautiful retelling of the life of Saint Nicholas Many stories are told about Saint Nicholas -- stories about his generosity and his miracles, stories about the concern he showed for those in poverty. This warm, inviting books tells many of these stories, both familiar and lesser-known. It recounts how he ended a famine by multiplying grain from a merchant ship and how he walked on water to rescue sailors from a terrible storm. And, of course, it tells the story of how Nicholas gave his inheritance to prevent a desperate man from selling his daughters into slavery. Anselm Grun s simple, graceful text and Giuliano Ferri s beautiful paintings combine to provide the perfect way to introduce young readers to the rich life of this beloved saint.
