Pepin: A Tale of Twelfth Night

by Evaleen Stein

Description: This magical tale follows the life of Pepin, a peasant lad of Medieval France, and circles around the twelfth day after Christmas (the Feast of the Three Kings) as his story unfolds. Raised by his grandfather after the death of his parents, Pepin lives quietly and industriously in a small hut by the edge of the forest. From his grandfather, Pepin learns the story of the wicked duke, Gundebold the Wolf, and learns, too, a consistent generosity that guides him through the twists and turns of his own growing up. A generosity that Pepin will need as the story progresses! Beautifully crafted, and subtly told, this tale will make a welcome addition to any child’s bookshelf!
