The entertaining story of a serendipitous invention

Brother Giovanni is a happy man, content to do what he knows best: baking. But all is not well at his monastery, where the monks are trying to teach the children their prayers in time for a very important visit from the Bishop. Having tried everything, they turn to Giovanni -- but he doesn’t know anything about teaching! Eventually, though, Brother Giovanni discovers how to use his gifts to offer the children the perfect motivation.

This vibrant book, which includes a historical note and free recipe, tells the fascinating story behind one of the world’s most popular snacks.

The Catholic Accent
"All readers will enjoy this fun story and beautifully illustrated hardcover book."

Kirkus
"A fanciful and inventive version of how those yummy big soft pretzels came to be. . . . As happy a piece of ecclesiastical cuisine as can be imagined."

Retailing Insight
"This charming village tale is based on a legend from the 7th century. Anna Smucker retells it with urgency and wit. Amanda Hall's illustrations bring it to life with bright colors, animated faces, and a cat who leads us to the happy ending. Children and adults will turn the pages over and over as they relive this fable from the past."

Booklist (Online)
"A thoroughly charming, fictionalized account of the origins of the pretzel. . . . Cheerful folkloric images in a modern twist on the traditional Florentine style show smiling faces full of mischief and mirth. . . . A recipe follows this happy food-origins tale."
