During an era characterised by valiant knights and nomadic troubadours, Loupio, a young orphaned poet and musician, embarks on an illustrious journey across Italy, experiencing many audacious exploits. After being befriended by Francis of Assisi, Loupio was protected by the pet wolf that this saintly guide had domesticated.
Through his frequently perilous adventures, Loupio imparts to youthful readers valuable teachings regarding faith, hope, and charity.
In The Fire and Other Stories, Clare of Assisi, the lovely young lady who fashioned Loupio's red cloak, is introduced to us. A separate narrative recounts how Loupio's companions unite in an effort to disprove the erroneous accusation that Loupio instigated a destructive blaze.
