text by Will C. van den Hoonaard
illustrations by Gloria Savoie
Did You Ever Wonder...A Story About the Báb As A Child is a children's story about the Báb as a Child. The Báb (1819-1850) is the Forerunner of one of the world's fastest growing religions today, the Bahá'í Faith. Using carefully gathered information about the Báb, author Will C. van den Hoonaard has created a unique story that will interest children between the ages of 6 and 11. Artist Gloria Savoie, one of Eastern Canada's better known artists, has specially created unique drawings to accompany this story.Together they succeed in making the Báb a figure closer to the heart and understanding, fostering the love of the Faith.
One of Canada's most noted authors, David Adams Richards, Gloria's childhood friend and neighbour, who has received the Order of Canada, the Governor General's Award, the Gemini Award and the Giller prize, wrote:
This joyful book is wonderfully written and brilliantly illustrated, a graceful and impeccable collaboration by Mr. Van den Hoonaard and Ms. Gloria Savoie.
