front-coverLooking for a meaningful first Communion gift or perhaps a last-minute Easter basket “stuffer”? “Amazing Saints, Volume 1,” written and illustrated by local artist and Catholic Herald Kids’ Page creator, Mario Macari, is hot off the presses.

The first volume, with a foreword by Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York, features the lives of 27 saints, along with Macari’s colorful, whimsical drawings.

The suggested retail price for the book is $12.50 and is available at several local stores including the Marian Center, Lil Friar Bookstore and Catholic Books and Gifts, on and through the Web site.
