Now available in paperback! The gospels tell of Simon of Cyrene--"a man coming in from the country"--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.
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.
