About this title


The Life of Saint Nicholas relates in enchanting pictures and text how Saint Nicholas came to be a loving symbol of generosity throughout the world. This marvelous tale, told tongue in cheek, begins in Italy, with an ancient manuscript unearthed by a truffle farmer, and travels through time to reveal St. Nicholas' early childhood, adolescence, and coming of age in Rome. 200 + four-color illustrations.


R.O. Blechman applies his trademark scribble to the life of Saint Nicholas, who was born a Roman citizen in A.D. 314 and developed a penchant for good works as a child. Blechman's saint is of the earnest, regular-guy variety, and his generosity constantly lands him in trouble. You could imagine him stumbling into a Frank Capra movie. But the goofy illustrations by Blechman keep the proceedings sincere without ever allowing them to get too sugary.
