Bible Stories Gone Crazy! by Josh Edwards (Author), Emiliano Migliardo (Illustrator)
Eight Bible stories are depicted in bright color and comic, cartoony illustrations. There is a sentence or two explaining the scene at the top, and then details to spot, mistakes to find, and questions to answer along the sides of the picture, such as, Did Noah s workmen REALLY have power tools? and How many rabbits are in the picture? Children will love scouring the illustrations to find the answers and spot more amusing details in the busy artwork of Emiliano Migliardo.
The stories are Noah and His Great Ark, Moses Crossing the Red Sea, Joshua and the Fall of Jericho, David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lions, Jonah and the Big Fish, Feeding the 5,000, and Man Through the Roof.
About The Author
Josh Edwards has written a number of Bible stories and innovative activity books for kids, building on his experience as a teacher and artist, and as a father of three rapidly-growing children. A Londoner by birth, residence and preference, he has travelled widely and always loved books and reading.|Chris Embleton-Hall is an English based artist specializing in children's illustration who uses a mixture of digital styles, most recently incorporating pattern and texture. He spent hours of his spare time as a child drawing with his granddad, before studying for a degree in illustration.
From the moment the book arrived the boys wanted to read this beautifully illustrated book, especially once the first page was turned and they saw the guys with hard hats building Noah’s Ark.
The author quickly brought bible stories to life and the boys were full of questions, and were asking good questions, and enjoying the humor that made them think. We had a carnival hawker selling rocks at the story of Little David Beats Goliath or another example that made them laugh was a picnic in the whales mouth and hot air balloons in the Jonah and the Monster Fish, they took turns picking out the funny happening, all the while remembering the real story.
This has become a favorite, and it seems there is always something new to find here. Highly recommend this one for you book collection.
I received this book through Kregel Blogger Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
