Description

Brother Juniper lives in the hills of Assisi with Father Francis and seven other brothers. Brother Juniper is the most generous of the brothers. He is so generous that he will happily give the robe off his back to someone in needeven if that leaves him with nothing else to wear. When Father Francis asks Brother Juniper to look after the church by himself one day, the other brothers are very worried about what theyÂll find when they return. But with his kind heart and simple ways, Brother Juniper reminds them all what it means to truly look after a church. This fresh take on the traditional stories of Brother Juniper is beautifully rendered in playful and expressive paintings, creating an unusual story that inspires equal amounts of laughter and goodwill.show more
