Description
Twins Benedict and Scholastica grew up as best friends in 6th-century Italy, climbing trees, racing, and occasionally bickering, but their paths diverged as they entered adulthood. Benedict's life was filled with dramatic moments and miracles as he grew into an important spiritual leader. Scholastica lived a quieter life through prayer and helping the needy, but she remained a strong influence on her brother as he developed the Rule of St. Benedict, which guides the Benedictine order to this day. Poet and Benedictine oblate Kathleen Norris, author of The Cloister Walk and the New York Times Notable Book Dakota, offers a moving text for readers 6 and up to accompany Tomie dePaola's beautiful, fresco-like paintings in the inspiring story of two miraculous yet very human siblings.

"Norris' telling is simple yet effective, and she manages to pack in a good deal of information—from miracles to the rules of Benedict's order—which appears in an afterword. DePaola does his usual inspired job with religious subjects. The pictures vary in size from—from full-page to frieze-like panels; their pure colors and rolling lines capture the Umbrian countryside."—Booklist
