A Fast and Fun Read!

This is such a creative way to introduce children to the remarkable Father Baker! Not only informative, but a truly enjoyable book about a WNY legend. The baseball theme throughout makes Father Baker much more relatable for kids, while still showcasing his faith in Our Lady of Victory and his love of the children he saved. Get it, you won't regret it!

Father Baker Deserves to be a Saint!

From the moment I turned the first page, I couldn't put down Father Baker's comic. The story of his youth - and journey to Priesthood - were incredible and inspiring. l loved the illustrations used in the book ... very eye-catching. Father Baker's devotion to Our Lady of Victory is remarkable and I was blown away that he built a Basilica to honor her. We need MORE people like Father Baker in the world. I will pray for his Canonization and I hope to visit his City of Charity one day. God bless Father Baker!!!
