Now available in paperback! The gospels tell of Simon of Cyrenea man coming in from the countrywho 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 produceof bread, eggs, and winewill become important symbols of Jesus passion and resurrection, remembered throughout the ages.
Together with sophisticated artwork, this picture book retelling of a traditional European tale is thought-provoking, with the events and meaning of the first Easter at its heart.
