The gospels tell of Simon of Cyrene - "a man coming in from the country" - who was ordered to carry Jesus' cross. Over the centuries, his story has been woven into Polish folklore: When Simon the farmer brings his wares to market, little does he expect how he will be involved in the events of that very special day, nor how his produce - of bread, eggs and wine - will become important symbols of Jesus' passion and resurrection, remembered throughout the ages. Together with sophisticated artwork, this picture book retelling of a traditional European tale is both thought-provoking and engaging, with the events and meaning of the first Easter at its heart.
"Joslin uses Christian imagery and simple, elegant prose to flesh out the Gospel's one-line story of Simon of Cyrene" --"School Library Journal"
