 A review by Sylvia Leontaritis, at "Adventures of an Orthodox Mom" Wednesday, September 16, 2009
"An Orthodox "Superhero" Book!"
"The other day I received My Warrior Saints from Potamitis Publishing in the mail! I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this book for months now and I couldn't wait to get in the house and tear the box open.

I saw the mock-up of the book when we edited it but when I held that book in my hand and opened it up, I was completely blown away by what an incredible work of art it really is. I have always admired Ekaterine's work but this book is my absolute favorite. The illustrations are absolutely magnificent! The beautifully retold stories of the saints, both common and lesser known, will capture both your attention and your child's!

The book has 70 pages of vibrant illustrations, including a beautiful gift page (shown below) and includes the stories of 12 different warrior saints. You'll be amazed at how much you and your children will learn from these stories!

I sometimes get a little annoyed when I watch the boys playing Superman or knights or G.I. Joe's, when they have so many saints who were soldiers and warriors. Unfortunately, there are not many resources available for children that depict our "superhero" saints, but since we received this book my boys have asked me to read them a story from My Warrior Saints every night! They have been wearing their saint's capes more often and pretending to be St. George or St. Nikitas--it is such a blessing!

I highly encourage all of you to take a look at the book (you can "flip" through the pages) on Potamitis Publishing's website! I think you will love it as much as I do!

God is truly at work through Potamitis Publishing as they put forth so many wonderful Orthodox materials for our young people. May He bless them always and may they continue to publish more of these works! "
 

Here is an excerpt from a review written by Elizabeth Williams:

"This beautifully produced large-format (A4 size) 70 page hardback book is an absolute treasure-trove for Orthodox parents. The book is printed on high-quality glossy paper, and is lavishly illustrated with full colour iconographic pictures on each double-page spread. Children aged 7- 8 and above would very likely be able to read the book largely unassisted. Young children will really enjoy pointing out and talking about the very detailed pictures, showing birds, animals and sea-life according to the Saint being illustrated. My seven year old was full of "Oooh, look at that !" on almost every page. It really is a pleasure to look at this book.

The Saints included are :-

St Mercurius

St Theodore The Recruit - I loved this chapter, dealing with the Saint's adventures battling the "dreadful serpent dragon" !

St Artemius

St Eustathios and the stag

St Callistratus and his companions

St George the Trophy-bearer

St Procopius

St Constantine the Great

St Menas

St Niketa the Goth

Sts Sergius and Bacchus

I sincerely hope this company will go from strength to strength and have many more years of publishing these delightful books for the benefit of Orthodox adults and children alike ! "
