A stunning picture-book interpretation of the legend of St. Christopher. Because of his stature, Reprobus the giant sets off to serve the most powerful ruler in the world. At one point during his travels, the giant uses his impressive strength to carry travelers across a fast-flowing river. One stormy night, he risks his life to help a small child across. With each step, the river rises higher, the wind blows harder, and his passenger grows heavier. Finally safe on the other side, the child reveals that he is Jesus, and renames Reprobus "Christopher," or "Bearer-of-Christ." Stunning illustrations accompany the dramatic text in this picture book portrayal of the legend of Christopher.
