The Miracles of Jesus Picture Book Details
Book: The Miracles of Jesus
Author: Tomie dePaola
Illustrator: Tomie dePaola
Inspired by Romanesque art, this book is still undeniably Tomie dePaola. Twelve of Jesus’ miracles are retold and illustrated. The retellings stay true to Biblical accounts and are accompanied by dePaola’s eye-catching, signature artwork.
My favorite is the illustration of The Calming of the Storm with its swirling blue waves. In a nod to monk-scribes from throughout history, dePaola ends the book with a monk hard at work. Wonderful conversation piece.
