Synopsis:

Caryll Houselander is best known for the intensity of her vision of the suffering Christ and His immeasurable love for us, a theme that she frequently spoke of with breathtaking luminosity in her many books about Him.

Few know, however, of the many remarkable stories she wrote for Catholic children delightful tales that are simple but not shallow. Indeed, like her books for adults, they manifest a tender love of Christ and His little ones not commonly found among us these days.

Here are twelve of Houselander s best tales, charmingly illustrated with Renée George s lively drawings of pirates and princesses, castles and kings.

Through the tale of Jack and Jim, even young children will grasp the meaning of Christ s suffering; in Racla the Gypsy, they ll discover the charity which is at the heart of the Eucharist; in the The Curé s Guest, they ll see how Christ makes up for the sins of others.

All the stories touch on Catholic themes, but these tales are not really catechetical. Yes, they do take for granted that Catholicism especially prayer and the Mass plays a large role in the lives of these children, but they do something more . . . and more important.

Tale after tale introduces children to the tender love that Jesus has for each of them, and to the fire of love for Him that can burn in the hearts of Catholics even in the hearts of little ones like themselves.

There is no better gift you can give to a young child.

About the Author: Caryll Houslander (1901-1954) was the aughor of more than fifteen books and hundreds of articles while she continued to paint, draw, carve, and teach art to troubled children. Among her most famous books are The Reed of God and This War is the Passion. In them, readers can glimpse the healing compassion toward others that she learned by bearing her own sufferings and through her identification with the sufferings of Christ.
