Mother Mary Loyola had used the simple allegory of a little maid and the gracious King who deigned to visit her as a catechetical tool for many years ... a brief sketch of this story appears in The Children's Charter, her book of advice for parents and teachers published in 1911. But it wasn't until 1919, when she sent a version of the story to P.J. Kenedy, an American publisher who took a keen interest in her work, that she began expanding what was originally a simple vignette into a full book-length story. It then took two years before this book was finished and brought out to great acclaim.This special Centenary Edition of Mother Mary Loyola's best known work is a replica version of the original 1921 hardcover edition of The King of the Golden City.It is truly a treasure! The original illustrations have been restored, including the beautiful frames surrounding the text on every page, and the publisher has carefully overseen each detail, down to the thicker paper that not only gives a similar feel as the older hardcover, but will ensure that this edition will make a lasting heirloom that we hope will be passed on to the next generation!Boy or girl, old or young, this story holds potent truths that call every one of us to greater holiness. If you haven't read it yet, what are you waiting for? Discover the book that distilled decades of Mother Mary Loyola's catechetical teaching into a truly delightful story.Large format hardback, with dust cover. 8.25" x 10.5".
