Tristan the Tumbler is a skilled acrobat, but he thinks that being a monk is the only way he can serve God properly. He finds, however, that he is ill-suited for the monastery. With the help of an angel and an understanding abbot, Tristan comes to understand himself and his true worth to God. Tumbler teaches an important lesson: every person and every talent has value in the eyes of God. For ages 7–10.
