A young boy called Salvador has been given the once-in-a-lifetime honour to carry the cross of Santa Cruz in the Maltese Good Friday pageant. It's his dream come true. But then tragedy strikes and his best friend's father is lost at sea. Salvador's priest asks him to let his friend carry the cross to help take his mind off this tragedy. Can Salvador sacrifice something he's wanted all his life?
an attractive new series which manages to use lively, well-illustrated fiction as a back-drop for RE, Citizenship and PSHE without being off-puttingly didactic or preachy.
