By Mersine Vingopoulo. Revised 2nd edition with new illustrations by Angeliki Delecha.
I-ville—a Kingdom where pride and selfishness dwell, and where people
live by the motto “Me first!” You-ville—a Kingdom where humility and
kindness have their home, and where people put the good of others before
their own. This is a story of a young boy named Stubborn, as he
strives to become the first person of I-ville to make the difficult
journey to the beautiful, joy-filled Kingdom of You-ville, and to become
a citizen there.
Drawn from the teachings of Elder Paisios of Mount Athos, Greece (1924–1994), these lessons can be of tremendous spiritual benefit for young and old alike. The journey of young Stubborn is
one that all of us must take, and which all of us can accomplish—if only we
shrink our "I" and put "You" first!
