The Queen and the Cats: A Story of Saint Helena

"Calee M. Lee has taken an obscure footnote from history and turned it into a warm and vivid story for children. Through this book, young readers, as well as their parents, can explore Queen Helena's arrival on Cyprus with a piece of the True Cross, only to find the island dangerously infested with snakes. Turbo Qualls' illustrations are colorful, rich, and add a touching and emotional element to the already engaging story."  - Keith Massey, Author of A Place of Brightness
