Young readers will chuckle over the antics of Francis and his wealthy friends. And they will keep reading to find out what Francis does next. They'll meet Clare, the little blonde daughter of his noble neighbors and learn how the paths of these two turn away from the life of luxury & material wealth to contentment & spirtual wealth as they follow their faith. Paperback, 12 Chapters, 187 pages. Today, from nation to nation, the good works of the Franciscans remind the world of the gentle charity of their founder - the "Poor Little Man" of Assisi. This was the same cheerful Francis, son of the merchant Bernardone, who helped with the marketing and scuffled with his brother and from time to time glimpsed in a neighboring castle the little golden-haired Lady Clare. He later rode boldly to battle, and, when captured by the enemy, heartened his fellow prisoners with his humorous antics. For he had always yearned to be both a knight and a troubadour - to do battle for God and at the same time to amuse with a joke and a song. Francis of Assisi did become God's Troubadour, and this is the story of the people's saint - the happy friar who preached in the marketplace and gave up family and fortune to devote his life to God and His poor. Other men followed, and St. Clare too left her castle to establish a convent. The saints of Assisi followed Lady Poverty and found happiness.
