From the Vision books series of saints for young people, this is the enthralling story of the great modern apostle of youth, St. John Bosco, and his best-loved pupil who became a saint, Dominic Savio. Blessed with tremendous natural and supernatural gifts, including a wonderful sense of humor, St. John Bosco overcome great obstacles to help deprived children find a better life.
Juggler, magician, acrobat, tailor, teacher and writer - John Bosco became all of these in his efforts to lead boys and girls to God. A prayer was the price of admission to his shows; a friendly contest to match skill or strength was his answer to the hoodlums who laughed at him. As a priest he was known as Don Bosco and built churches and schools.
Don Bosco's schools were cheerful places where the school spirit ran high. This story of St. John Bosco and his pupil, St. Dominic Savio, will appeal to the young readers of today.
