Those who delight in Canton's other well-loved children's books, A Child's Book of Saints
and A Child's Book of Warriors
, will find much to satisfy in his story of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary. Canton has consulted some of the earliest sources to assemble a tale as rich in historical detail as it is in poetic beauty.
Saint Elizabeth's sweetness and generosity are brought to life in these pages, now beautifully retypeset and enhanced with a map showing the locations as they were in 13th century Europe.
This volume also features the breathtaking full-color illustrations of Eleanor Fortescue Brickdale, as found in the original 1912 edition.
