In each short chapter of The Canticle of the Creatures, revered Italian poet Luigi Santucci presents a snippet of a story from the legendary life of Saint Francis, and a song of praise to him from the perspective of one of the saint's beloved animal friends. The wise and happy “words” of a cicada, a nightingale, a falcon, a wolf, a lamb, and many other gentle beings are accompanied by vibrantly beautiful illustrations by Brother Martin Erspamer. What a treasure for nature lovers who appreciate the elemental importance of thinking of all living creatures as our brothers and sisters. (CH)
