From the creator of Hellboy, Father Gaetano's Puppet Catechism by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden is an illustrated novella that brings Twilight Zone originality to the written page

In the aftermath of a critical World War II battle, Father Gaetano is assigned as the sole priest at the Church of San Domenico in the small, seaside Sicilian village of Tringale. The previous pastor has died and there is a shortage of clergy at the moment, so until another can be spared, the young priest must say all of the masses himself.

Mass is not Father Gaetano's only responsibility, however. The war has created many orphans, and thus the San Domenico rectory has been converted into an orphanage which is also his domain. The children are a joy to him, but they have lost so much, and many have begun to question their faith and their God, and his attempts to teach them catechism are in vain . . . until he finds an old puppet theatre and an ornate box of puppets in the basement. Handcrafted by the building's former caretaker, now absent, the puppets seem the perfect tool to get the children to pay attention to their lessons. But after dark the puppets emerge from that ornate box, without their strings. While the children have been questioning their faith, the puppets believe Father Gaetano's Bible stories completely. But there is such a thing as too much faith. And the children's lives will never be the same again.

Wow! What a great little story. I am a day or two late writing this review in time for this to be a Christmas gift, but for those with Amazon gift cards, I highly recommend it.

I've always been attracted to stories with a Miyazakian lack of antagonist. This story features only regular people trying to do the best they can in an area ravaged by war. The small things that bother me about stories today, like lingering on misunderstandings to drag out a plot, are not present in this story. I read it very quickly because I was enjoying being with all the characters and living in their world.

I suppose my only negative criticism would be a lack of understanding what part Mignola played in developing the story. Perhaps he had a great part in the plot, but the thumbnail images that occasionally decorate the pages add little to the story itself and sometimes I had no idea what they were illustrating in relation to the words on the page. Still, they are small and only exist as a bonus anyway.

I have purposefully left out a summation of the plot as I am sure the one that led me to buy the book is enough.

I hope you find this short critique helpful and enjoy the book as much as I did.

This is a solid little piece of work. The direction it goes is not unexpected, but the craftsmanship done makes the read worth it. As a long time fan of Mike Mignola, I saw the entire thing in his art style in my head, which was a bonus for me. The characterizations in the story were good and I had a sense of who the characters were and what they were like.

I recommend this book.

I had to read for a religions class but was in awe of the story it was trying to tell.

Another excellent collaboration between Golden and Mignola. Well paced and well written; it never lags or gets bogged down with excess verbiage.
It was a good mystery. I liked the character development.
