"The brothers Shannon return with an adept and poignant interpretation of the medieval French folktale, 'The Acrobat of God (or of Our Lady),' " said PW. "A sense of wonder permeates the polished and understated retelling; the artist's brilliant characterization of hero Péquelé reveals a boy at once humble and larger than life." Ages 4-8. (Oct.)
