The Holy Heroes Mom Favorite!

In this retelling of the old French legend, a juggler offers to the Christ Child the only Christmas gift he has. With Tomie DePaola's recent passing, we knew that this Catholic classic needed to be given a place at Holy Heroes. We are thrilled to have this Tomie DePaola classic (we hope the first of many!) available for Catholic families to add to their bookshelves.
-----
This beautiful new edition of Tomie dePaola’s 1978 classic retelling of a French legend stars a little juggler whose unique talent leads him to what might be a Christmas miracle.

Little Giovanni is poor and homeless, but he can do something wonderful: he can juggle.

The people of Sorrento marvel at his talents, and before long, he becomes famous throughout Italy for his rainbow of colored balls that delight the nobility and townspeople alike. But as the years pass, Giovanni grows old, and his talents begin to fail him. No longer a celebrated performer, he is once again poor and homeless, begging for his food.

Until one Christmas Eve, when Giovanni picks up his rainbow of colored balls once more. And what happens next just might be a miracle…
