Auntie Joanna and Auntie Kati join forces

The Catholic journalist, author and broadcaster, Joanna Bogle (above left) has joined forces with freelance illustrator Kati Teague to produce a book on the life of Blessed John Paul II. Entitled Blessed John Paul the Great, it contains 24 illustrated stories which introduce young (and old) readers to the life of this great man.

In her speech at the launch, held in our Westminster bookshop on Tuesday evening, Joanna pointed out what a privilege it is for those of us who lived through the Pontificate of John Paul II. We know, and therefore can appreciate, all that he gave the Church - his many writings, his worldwide visits, his leadership, the Mysteries of Light, World Youth Day, to name but a few. Yet, to the younger generation of Catholics John Paul II is but a name. Joanna hopes that her book will keep alive the legacy of this great pope.

The book can be purchased from any of our bookshops or online here. Please note, due to technical problems, our website does not at present have a picture of the cover. However, a selection of Kati's illustrations can be seen below.
