This elegantly illustrated picture hardback collects together the stories of men and women, leading remarkable and inspirational lives in the Christian faith. Margaret McAllister tells the stories in her own inimitable style - lively, touching and vivid. Some stories are told in the first person, others as if by onlookers, giving variety to the tales, and each concludes with extra information about the life of the saint. Alida's illustration style, which is inspired by ancient art and architecture, is perfectly suited to the book, full of grace and sophistication. A beautiful and informative book. The stories are: Peter, Paul, Perpetua and Felicity, Patrick, Cyril and Methodius, Francis and Clare, Martin de Porres, Teresa of Ávila, Ignatius of Loyola, Bernadette of Lourdes, Padre Pio: Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, and Josephine Bakhita.

Margaret McAllister is the author of over forty books for children, from funny things for under fives to teen fiction and everything in between – animals, history, funny, scary. For Lion she has written vivid re-tellings of Bible stories and tales of the saints, and her newest book, The Good Thing About Bad Days is to help young readers through the tough times that jump out and bite us.

Margaret lives in beautiful Northumberland with her husband, a retired Methodist minister. They have lived in five different places in the North-East and Yorkshire while bringing up three children who have turned out surprisingly well. She loves books, theatre, animals, walks in the countryside, welcoming visitors to Hexham Abbey and meeting up with friends. Margaret is a collector of grandchildren (including a grandspaniel.) Her long ago spaniel, Daniel, will welcome you to her website http://www.margaretmcallister.co.uk/
