Joseph and Chico


Has anyone read this yet? It looks delightful.
This is part of the summary of the book at the Ignatius Press website:

"In this beautifully illustrated book for children, Chico the cat describes the life of his "best friend", Pope Benedict, in this authorized biography of the Pope for young people approved by the Vatican.

With colorful and sometimes amusing language, the author makes this funny cat tell us about the life of the young Joseph all the way up to his election as Pontiff on April 19, 2005. It recounts the Nazi era in Germany when the Pope was a teenager, calling the war years "one of the most dramatic and shameful times in the history of man". Later when he became Cardinal Ratzinger, Chico recounts how each time when the Cardinal returned to Germany from Rome for a vacation, the cat would run into his house and sit on his lap as he played the piano."

Yes, we read it. It was just as wonderful as I hoped. Makes you love our holy Father even more if that is possible.
