A book for children aged 8 and upwards, the story of Saint Yared of Ethiopia is an inspirational tale for everyone, as a reluctant learner becomes a role model for future generations.
An evocative tale of love, hardship and success, with universal appeal, coloured with traditional detail set against the rich cultural backdrop of Ethiopia.
"A fatherless young boy loses hope and struggles to learn at school. On the point of giving up and running away, the example of a caterpillar helps open his heart to God. With the faith, hope and determination this brings, he faces up to his problems.
The boy labelled dumb and stupid becomes the greatest musical genius in all Africa!"
