This graphic novel illustrates the life of St. Nicholas from his beginnings as a young priest in Asia Minor in the late 3rd Century until just before his death in the mid 4th Century. The wisdom and Christian teachings of Nicholas are revealed through conversations with a Greek-attired mouse named Cicero who is dressed to look like a little philosopher. Cicero questions many of Nicholas's decisions until the mouse himself converts to Christianity late in the story. An excellent introduction to one of the most important, least understood, real characters in Christian history.

A scripture verse for each chapter focuses on the main lessons Nicholas learns along the way. Saint Nicholas and the Mouse of Myra is an excellent graphic novel for Christian youth.
Mary Lou Henneman, Congregational Libraries Today
The book moves along at a nice pace and is a very engaging and colorful introduction to the saint upon whom Santa Claus is based; I particularly like its message about generous giving to the poor. Its a great read for kids eight and up (and for their parents, too Im learning a lot about Saint Nicholas that I didnt know before).
Both The Christmas Stick and Saint Nicholas and the Mouse of Myra were review copies courtesy of Paraclete Press, which publishes all sorts of great spiritual books for kids and adults. Check them out I promise youll find something you like.
