A curious sideways book whose main claim to fame is probably the ribbon affixed to the cover saying Easter Joy. An old carpenter teaches children to carve as he finishes renovating Pilotte's church in time for Easter. He has fashioned the new crucifix himself. But the crucified Jesus is smiling, and the people, finding this fact a sacrilege, ostracize him. Soon they find him dead at home with this motto carved in the mantel over his hearth: Every day is Easter. Are the icons mixed up on the credits-page near the end? The non-religious seems to be wearing the habit!
