The Juggler of Our Lady

A sort of Christmas story, this magical 1952 retelling of a medieval legend by famed illustrator R. O. Blechman was a predecessor to the modern graphic novel. The joyful story of a poor, untalented juggler who has a soul-stirring encounter with a statue of Mary, the Mother of Christ, is accompanied by a Foreword by Jules Feiffer and an Introduction by Maurice Sendak.
