The gospels tell of Simon of Cyrene – "a man coming in from the country" – who was ordered to carry Jesus’ cross.

Over the centuries, his story has been woven into Polish folklore: When Simon the farmer brings his wares to market, little does he expect how he will be involved in the events of that very special day, nor how his produce – of bread, eggs and wine – will become important symbols of Jesus’ passion and resurrection, remembered throughout the ages.

Together with sophisticated artwork, this picture book retelling of a traditional European tale is both thought-provoking and engaging, with the events and meaning of the first Easter at its heart.
