In Gubbio, Italy, Saint Francis shows the villagers that neither wealth nor strength are as powerful as love and compassion. Terrible wolf is terrorizing the town of Gubbio, and no one can stop him! First the townspeople send a brave knight. He never returns. Then they send an army of trained warriors. They get destroyed. Finally the townspeople send a great and mighty war machine, but even that can't stop the wolf. The villagers don't know what to do -- until Saint Francis visits the town and speaks to the wolf in his own language. Caldecott Medal-winning artist Richard Egielski exquisitely illustrates this classic tale of love, friendship, and the importance of living together in harmony.
