Together with sophisticated artwork, a picture book retelling of a traditional European tale, with the events and meaning of the first Easter at its heart
Both thought-provoking and engaging, this is the story of Simon of Cyrene --"a man coming in from the country," as the Gospels refer to him--who was ordered to carry Jesus' cross. Over the centuries, his story has been woven into Polish folklore; when Simon the farmer brings his wares to market, little does he expect how he will be involved in the events of that very special day, nor how his produce--of bread, eggs, and wine--will become important symbols of Jesus' passion and resurrection, remembered throughout the ages.
