KIRKUS REVIEW

A charming if somewhat precious story of an orphaned lad of Marseilles, who is adopted by an old priest, one of the Brown Brothers, who makes images of the saints. The youth, fascinated by the creative aspects of the art, secretly makes figures of his compatriots -- and eventually brings them to light. Guy Alexander, the illustrator, was born in the south of France and his pictures are just right.
