Terrible wolf is terrorizing the town of Gubbia, and no one can stop him! First the townspeople send a brave knight. He never returns. Then they send an army of trained warriors. They get destroyed. Finally the townspeople send a great and mighty war machine, but even that can't stop the wolf. The villagers don't know what to do -- until Saint Francis visits the town and speaks to the wolf in his own language.
Caldecott Medal -- winning artist Richard Egielski exquisitely illustrates this classic tale of love, friendship, and the importance of living together in harmony.
