    "Will you carry me safely over the water?" asked the child.

    "I will carry you," Offero answered.

    Then he lifted the child onto his shoulders. He took his staff in his hand and stepped down into the river.

    Offero wants to find the greatest ruler in the world in order to serve him, and his search takes him from a king to the devil to a hermit who he hopes will help him. When a mysterious child asks Offero to carry him over the icy river, he obliges—and only afterward does he discover the child's true identity. Then Offero's name is changed to Christopher.

    Author Margaret Hodges retells with power and simplicity this unforgettable tale of Saint Christopher, who became known as the patron saint of travelers. And illustrator Richard Jesse Watson has created dramatic paintings that perfectly capture Offero's journey and his discovery of the One he sought.
