About this Book

In his companion book to The Miracles of Jesus, Tomie de Paola presents the seventeen well-known parables told by Jesus, amongst which are "The Sower", "The Good Samaritan", and "The Prodigal Son".

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
