The villagers don't know what to do -- until Saint Francis visits the town and speaks to the wolf in his own language. Caldecott Medal -- winning artist Richard Egielski exquisitely illustrates this classic tale of love, friendship, and the importance of living together in harmony/5(11).

This lovely retelling of one of the lesser known tales of the Saint Francis's lessons centers on the legend of the great wolf of Gubbio, a ferocious canine who terrorized the town and was slowly reducing it to penury and starvation. In nearby Assisi, Brother Francis heard of /5(2). In this sharp and lively picture book, Egielski (The Tub People) recreates the oft-told tale of the friar's taming of a wicked wolf that terrorized the Italian town of Gubbio in the 13th century.

Though no knight, army or "great war machine" can stop the violent creature, Saint Francis' gentle words urging the wolf to make peace do the trick/5(12). A charming retelling of one of the most famous "miracles" of Saint Francis, his relationship with Brother Wolf.

The wolf is very scary (I love the picture of the wolf using a board from a destroyed home as a toothpick!) and Saint Francis very gentle, especially with children/5. This lovely retelling of one of the lesser known tales of the Saint Francis's lessons centers on the legend of the great wolf of Gubbio, a ferocious canine who terrorized the town and was slowly reducing it to penury and starvation.

In nearby Assisi, Brother Francis heard of their plight and came to their rescue/5. The story of St. Francis and the wolf comes from a manuscript written around the yeara hundred years after St.

Francis died. The manuscript is called Fioretti di San Francesco, the Little Flowers of St. Francis. The manuscript contains 53 short chapters with stories about St. Francis.
