“A beautiful and engaging story that will inspire young readers with St. Conrad’s willingness to give all to Christ.”—Haley Stewart, Author of The Grace of Enough and the Carrots for Michaelmas blog

St. Conrad and the Wildfire is a beautifully told tale of bravery, sorrow, and the rewards that come from doing the right thing, even when it’s difficult. I can’t wait to read it to my son!”—Emily Stimpson Chapman, Author of The Catholic Table

St. Conrad and the Wildfire is a perfect picture book, and more than that, it does the best that any great book can do: By telling a beautiful and true story, it engages the mind and heart, lifts the soul to God, and leaves the reader better than before. We owe a great debt to the author, illustrator, and publisher for bringing the tale of St. Conrad to life in such an exquisite form—both children and adults will delight in the gorgeous pictures and inspiring text. May this book reach the audience it so richly deserves!”—Suzie Andres, Author and blogger,

I bought this book for my almost 4 year old and she loves the story. Beautiful colourful pictures. And what’s better than reading a true story about a saint?
