2011 INDIES Winner
Silver, Picture Books (Children's)

A medieval boy’s first thought upon waking is to care 
for his family and their collection of barnyard animals while investigating rumors of a nearby predator. This 
fictional morning in the childhood of Saint Francis of Assisi describes him taming a wolf with his generous spirit (and some shared breakfast). Gorgeous illustrations offer a window onto a sweeter world where the implausible seems possible. All ages.
