About the Author
AUTHOR Journalism and peace work have been major ingredients in author Jim Forest's life. He is secretary of the Orthodox Peace Fellowship and editor of its journal, In Communion. He is a recipient of the Peacemaker Award from Notre Dame University's Institute for International Peace Studies. He is a prolific writer of inspirational, historical, and bio-graphical books, most recently of The Wormwood File: E-Mail from Hell. Jim makes his home in Alkmaar, Holland, near Amsterdam. He is father to six children and grandfather to four. Silent as a Stone is his third children's book.

None of that excitement comes across in Forest's telling. The story (the miracle, actually) comes across as a mildly interesting incident in WWII Paris. Over all, the story is a welcomed addition to children's litterature (I'm glad Forest took this story on) and the illustrations are soft, lovely and lively. However, the story could have been better told, I think.
