In his companion book to The Miracles of Jesus, Tomie de Paola presents the seventeen well-known parables told by Jesus, amongst which are "The Sower", "The Good Samaritan", and "The Prodigal Son". This book will make a delightful gift: it is ideal for shared reading aloud at home or in school, and children will enjoy looking at the stylish illustrations. The text is accompanied by Tomie de Paolo's memorable illustrations. Taking his inspiration from Romanesque art, he has incorporated its decorative style in these distinctive pictures. He was particularly attracted by the ornamental, geometric and earthy qualities in the art of this period, especially by the carvings in the small churches of France and Italy.

Tomie de Paola is an internationally popular illustrator and adapter of Bible stories and themes for children.From Publishers Weekly:
DePaola retells New Testament parables, many of which invite further discussion about their messages (some of the parables will require a bit of puzzling through for picture book readers). The palette of the illustrations has an intense, hand-mixed look; the pictures reveal clues about the stories' meanings. "The Good Samaritan" is included, as is "The Mustard Seed," "The Prodigal Son" and other pieces from the books of Matthew, Mark and Luke, parables that dePaola makes into entertaining, thought-provoking material for young readers. A luminous collection. Ages 7-11.
