      Editorial Reviews

      "Wholly beautiful! For those of us with a religious background—or
      none!" —Kirkus on The Weight of a Mass

      "Lilting storytelling style. Charming." —School Library Journal on
      The Weight of a Mass

      Product Description
      With exquisite artwork and evocative text, this original fable
      explores the events of Jesus' life, and demonstrates the role of the
      Virgin Mary as the benevolent agent of God's people. Reduced to
      desolation by a king and prince who feel they have been wronged, the
      residents of a once-favored village must seek help from the queen, a
      native of their devastated town. Religious subjects are presented
      clearly in an allegorical style that proves entertaining, and also
      serves to provide children with examples of virtue and good behavior.
