Fun and informative! See the life of Francis come to life as never before in this graphic novel based on the real-life events of the saint's life, set in the mountains of Italy. Francis saves the life of an innocent duck, the only fictitious character in the story, and the two become each other's inspiration. As they grow in faith and friendship, Francis recognizes in Br. Duck everything that he desires in living the Gospel life: humility, poverty, and a childlike imagination. Readers of all ages will enjoy the humor as well as the ageless wisdom offered as the story of Francis's life is vividly told, scene-by-scene.
