Product Description


In the days of knights and castles lived an adventurous young troubadour named Loupio.

Orphaned and on his own in 13th century Italy, plucky Loupio meets Brother Francis of Assisi and his friend Brother Wolf, and so begins a new life of joyfully trying to do good, while still getting by in a dangerous world.

The youthful and colorful comic-book style presents to young readers the exciting challenges of growing up in the Middle Ages, which often look very like the challenges of growing up in any age. Like the Tin Tin and Asterix comics, this series, never before available in English, is sure to entertain young readers. But more than that, the seeds of faith, hope and charity taking root in Loupio, might grow in their hearts too. Illustrated.

Ages 7 and up.

Excellent comic series
(Canada) | March 19th, 2021
My son loves and treasures this comic series since he was 7. St. Francis is one of his favorite saint and this is about the boy who befriends the wolf tamed by St. Francis. Many short stories and good lessons about faith and life, suitable for middle-school kids. Beautiful pictures.
