Reminiscent of a medieval Book of Hours, The Canticle of the Creatures with its rich artwork and graceful text invite the reader to participate in its happy wisdom rather than merely read it.
There's a twist - a talking cicada, wolf, cat, lamb, fish, rabbit, bees, and many birds tell the stories of St. Francis. There is a mystery in the 'chirping, barking, mooing, tweeting, and meowing' of creation. This gorgeous book with its four-color illustrations tempts the reader to see the world anew.
