“Knowing he was loved by God filled Francis with gratitude and happiness. This book is a look at how this gratitude and happiness led Francis to treat his brother and sister creatures with respect. For the young children with whom you read this book, talking to animals and trees will probably make perfect sense.” —Phil Gallery, Saint Francis and the Animals
“Jon Sweeney’s first book for children invites us to peek inside the Vatican and discover a Pope who loves sugar cookies and early morning walks and adorable cats just like the rest of us. I can’t wait for more Margaret the cat and her adventures in Rome!” —Lisa M. Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com and author of the Chime Travelers series
