In the exciting days of chivalrous knights and wandering troubadours, a young orphaned poet and musician named Loupio travels throughout Italy experiencing many daring adventures. Befriended by Francis of Assisi and accompanied by the wolf tamed by this saintly guide, Loupio’s often dangerous encounters help him and young readers learn lessons of faith, hope, and charity. In The Quest, volume 6 of this best-selling series, Loupio goes in search of a bell for his friend Saint Francis. Along the way, he is put to the test by dishonesty, hunger, cold, and discouragement. Trusting in God’s providence, Loupio discovers his own resourcefulness and the kindness of strangers.
