About this Book

The companion book to The Parables of Jesus, this is a simple telling of the stories of the twelve miracles performed by Jesus. The selection, chosen by Tomie de Paola, begins with the story of "The Wedding at Cana", and also includes "The Calming of the Storm", "The Loaves and the Fishes" and "The Raising of Lazarus".

This book will make a delightful gift: it is ideal for shared reading aloud at home or in school, and children will enjoy looking at the stylish illustrations. The text is accompanied by Tomie de Paolo's memorable illustrations. Taking his inspiration from Romanesque art, he has incorporated its decorative style in these distinctive pictures. He was particularly attracted by the ornamental, geometric and earthy qualities in the art of this period, especially by the carvings in the small churches of France and Italy.

Reviews and Comments

"Striking pictures ... full of clear, strong images whose boldness will appeal to children, while adults will enjoy the warm and vivid but unsentimental characterisation of the people ... the point of these books is their pictures, and they are lovely."
School Librarian
