    Wanted to read this as a uick biography of Benedict XVI Learned a few uick facts about him especially things we share in common a love of books learning Germany cats bears and last but far from least our faith He was born on Easter Eve in 1927 and baptized on Easter that year His family was forced to move around a lot during the 1930s while he was growing up He served in WWI and was interred in a prison camp following the war He graduated from college in Munich He dislikes controversy and conflict; he prefers contemplative study and uiet days reading with his cat Previous Entry Had lunch with my good friend Laine today and she told me about this book It sounds like fun for kids of all ages and a good gift ideaI didn't know he likedhad a cat

    Reason for Reading read aloud to my son for our religion class Comments This is a big kid's picture book with a large amount of text and would be suitable for up to age 12 The vocabulary is also uite high possibly on account of the translation which would make me not recommend it for younger than 7 The story is told by a pet cat that the Pope once had and while I found the 'talking cat' angle a little strange myself I could see that its purpose of bringing the story closer to a child's understanding adding a narrator and an off beat sense of humour worked very well My 9yo son responded very well to Chico's voice The biography covers Joseph Ratzinger's life from birth until the day he is elected Pope More detail is covered in young Joseph's life while his later life of teacher bishop and cardinal is uickly covered Detail is once again added very well at the end describing the process of when and how a new Pope is elected The illustrations are beautiful and compliment the book nicely done mostly in cool colours in what appears to be watercolours A good book for a brief look at the topic that gives just the right kind of information that will help children understand just who the Pope is I also think that the book would be perfectly suitable for an audience of any religion as it is not written specifically to Catholics or even Christians Recommended

    The translation on this is dreadful but the story idea is cute and officially sanctioned by the Vatican Who knew the pope is a cat person
