Peso De Una Misa: Un Relato De Fe by Josephine Nobisso
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


When a poor devout widow begs for a scrap of bread from a rich faithless baker, she promises to participate in the king's wedding mass as payment for the baker's generosity. The baker writes 'One Mass' on a scrap of paper and places it on his scale to determine how much bread it is worth. To his and the entire town's surprise, nothing in the shop, not even the gigantic wedding cakes made for the king, outweighs the simple piece of paper representing the true worth of a mass. Luminous old-world watercolour paintings grace the interior of the book to lend an air of solemnity and sacred beauty to the story. (Cuando una pobre viuda devota ruega por unas migajas de pan a un acaudalado panadero desleal, promete su participacion en la misa de la boda del rey como agradecimiento por la generosidad del panadero. El panadero escribe "Una misa" en un pedazo de papel y lo pone en la balanza para determinar su valor en pan. Para sorpresa suya y de todo el pueblo, nada en el negocio, ni siquiera el gigantesco pastel de bodas hecho para el rey tiene mas valor que un simple pedazo de papel que representa el valor de una misa. Luminosas acuarelas del viejo mundo dan gracia al interior del libro y las ilustraciones laminadas en oro brindan un aire de solemnidad y sagrada belleza a la historia.) Text in Spanish.
