Perilous Mission
Perilous Mission
by Father Albert M. Hublet, SJ

King Peter IV reigns over Possylvania and the kingdom is a happy one. Suddenly, his son Harold, sole heir to the throne, becomes blind. The doctors can do nothing for him, and the king soon fears for the future
of his kingdom.

However, a strange visitor to the royal castle brings new hope. He tells King Peter of a flower endowed with the mysterious power of curing all human ailments. A group of devoted pages, led by Gerald, sets
off in search of it.

Their quest will be long and fraught with difficulties. They will have to confront tempests, the cruelty of men, slavery, wild beasts, pirates, and other dangers. They will enter a world that is fantastic, or rather supernatural.

Of all those who set out, will one of them manage to bring the mysterious flower back to Possylvania? First and foremost, will even one of them come back alive from this perilous mission?

Adventure in Africa
Adventure in Africa
by Father Albert Hublet

John Dollay (known to all as Zou) is a 12-year-old live-wire who is the heart and soul of the Jesuit school he attends. His mother, Madelaine, is a fervent Catholic while his father, Pierre, has abandoned almost all religious practice, eager to curry favor with his company’s bosses in the Congo. Influenced by his mother and his teacher Father Ferval, Zou himself is intensely religious…which doesn’t stop him being a bundle of fun and getting into lots of mischief and trouble!

When Madelaine tells Zou that they are both going to join Pierre Dollay in the Congo, the little boy is overjoyed. Zou’s new life lives up to all his expectations and he soon gets caught up in all kinds of adventures.

But there is one dark cloud that constantly hangs over Zou and his mother: Pierre Dollay’s indifference and even hostility towards the Faith. Will Zou, his mother and the zealous Father Bernard succeed in being God’s instruments in bringing Monsieur Dollay back to the Church?

This book is packed full of adventure but also with wonderful examples for Catholic children.
