A princess who was saved from marrying by miraculously growing a beard, a saint who sat on a pillar for 20 years, another who survived being swallowed by a dragon, a girl who sailed to Cornwall on a leaf after missing the boat - these are some of the characters in this astonishing book, alongside the more famous St Francis, St George and St Christopher. Richard Brassey's inimitable mix of pictures, captions and deadpan narrative is irresistible and rescues from oblivion some wonderful stories that children will relish.
