Children's book details the life and pontificate of John Paul II

John Paul II boasts one of the longest pontificates in history, and a long list of accomplishments. There are hundreds of books written about his life and views, but not many for children. "The life of John Paul II,â? attempts to fill this void.  FRANK ZAMMIT Author, "The Life of John Paul IIâ? "It's a love story. It's a love story between John Paul II, the blessed John Paul II and humanity.â?  The book and illustrations depict 33 different stages in his life, from birth to his canonization. It also addresses tough moments in his life, like the death of his mother and his assassination attempt. But the biggest focus is on the message and legacy John Paul II left behind.  RAY BEZZINA Kite Publishing (Malta) "There's the message of love, the message of forgiveness, which is given to children in an easy way for them to understand.â? The book is geared to kids ages 8-10. But it's no coincidence. These are the children that were born after John Paul II passed away. RAY BEZZINA Kite Publishing (Malta) "It is a pity if, John Paul II's message, there weren't all the efforts done so that his message would continue to be passed on from generation to generation.â?  In addition to the stories on John Paul II's life, the book also include a preface and reflections from some of his closest collaborators, like his secretary Msgr. Alfred Xuereb. FRANK ZAMMIT Author, "The Life of John Paul IIâ? "I wanted to pass the message to children not only of my pen, but of people, of collaborators that used to work side by side with the Pope.â?  With the focus on his message, the publishers decided to make the book accessible price wise. After its initial launch in Maltese, publishers issued a second edition in English, but are looking into other languages as well. RCA MG VM -PR Up:AC
