Book for Boys

£34.99

Product description

'This book is not simply entertainment for boys. The first ten stories about boys Father Trese has known may bring a tear as well as laugh to the reader. Then he talks to boys about how they can grow in grace, become mature, about sacraments and about the priesthood. Then part III is a series about the Mass, all concrete and practical. The last part is a popularity clinic in which boys themselves, under Father Trese's deft handling, discuss faults and virtues common to boys.

Boys will read and like this book. Adults will read it too- and admit boy-ishly to the difficulty of not being able to but it down.' - Taken from the blurb#

131 pages. Aquamarine boards with bright gilt title on spine. Spine slightly sunned. Small bumps to top and bottom of spine and to top left corner of rear board. Top of boards again slightly sunned. Pages are crisp, clean and free of any markings. The book is tightly bound. Dust jacket present, slightly crinkled at top and bottom of spine. The spine of the dust jacket is sunned as is the top of the dust jacket.
