The Holy Giant
Tomie de Paola
Hardbound, Large Format
One of the most beautiful and powerful “saint stories” is that of Reprobus who became Christopher. It is a whose strong yet graceful images capture the essence of the nature of transformation, of holiness, of divine grace. Every child I’ve known who has heard it has been captivated by it, wanting to become Christopher, to carry the Christ Child across the storming waters.
Tomie dePaola’s retelling, accompanied by his sensitive and radiant watercolors, is a rendition worthy of the power of this story. Outstanding.
