Weight Of A Mass.png

Book—The Weight Of A Mass

When a poor devout widow begs for a scrap of bread from a rich faithless baker, she promises to participate in the king’s wedding mass as payment for the baker’s generosity. The baker writes

“One Mass” on a scrap of paper and places it on his scale to determine how much bread it is worth.

To his and the entire town’s surprise, nothing in the shop, not even the gigantic wedding cakes made for the king, outweighs the simple piece of paper representing the true worth of a mass.

Book — Take It To The Queen

This original fable explores the events of Jesus' life, and demonstrates the role of the Virgin Mary as the

benevolent agent of God's people. Reduced to desolation by a king and prince who feel they have been wronged, the residents of a once-favored village must seek help from the queen,  a native of their devastated town. Religious subjects are presented clearly in an allegorical style that proves entertaining,

and also serves to provide children with examples of virtue and good behavior.
