A hermit had a vision, a proud and selfish governor was stricken with paralysis, and a princess lay dying. All these events were part of a plan - God's plan - to bring the very first icon of the Mother of God, painted by the Evangelist Luke himself, from the emperor's palace in Constantinople to a new home on Cyprus.

A clumsy scullery boy finds solace in a place known only to him and his God in this charming story of the ninth-century saint, Euphrosynos, commonly known in Orthodox tradition as " Cook." Author Catherine K. Contopoulos easily links the feelings of contemporary children with the feelings of this legendary character' self-conscious, awkward boy who leaves his loving family and the taunts of his neighbors to find a niche in the kitchen of a monastic community. Readers will hurt when neighbors make fun of a confused Euphrosynos at the local cheese shop, laugh and then tremble when an austere monk slips upon Euphrosynos' newly mopped floor, and find an oasis of peace as Euphrosynos prays in his solitary cave. They also will learn lessons of perseverance, humility, and dependence upon God as they are naturally drawn into the story. Contopoulos achieves these goals with language that a child will understand.

The Gospel of Christ, with its message of mercy to all who repent for the forgiveness of their sins through the Lord' death and resurrection, is incomparably greater than the story of Jonah. Yet this prophetic tale, so charming and disarming in its implicitly and power, remains forever' Christ' own testimony' the unique signs of God' saving work in His beloved Son Jesus.
SVS Press is pleased to provide this illustrated version of the prophecy of Jonah especially for children. May it serve one more time, and over and again, to open our minds and hearts to the Gospel of Christ which it is inspired to prefigure and signify.
