I bought these books for bedtime reading to my teen & pre-teen boys, but have been enjoying them so much myself, I haven't gotten around to reading them aloud yet! I bought the whole series and am nearly finished with book 2. The use of allegory presents the good news of the gospel in such a clear and memorable way, that it stays with you even after you finish the book. Highly recommended.

We absolutely LOVED this book! I read it to my kids ranging from 6-10 and they were begging for more each day. I love how Biblical truths are explained in an allegorical way so clearly for children to grasp. I found myself deeply affected by the story as well. More than once the truth of the allegory brought out the goosebumps or tears in me as I realized anew God's love for me, a sinner. We can't wait to read the rest of the series!

This series of books is our family's FAVORITE!!! We have 8 children ranging from 1-16 years old and ALL our kids ages 5 and up LOVE these books. We have read them out loud a number of times and the BEST part is that I have had so many opportunities of using analogies in one of the books to explain spiritual truths in the children's lives that makes SO MUCH sense to them after having read the books! This price is way too cheap for how much you will gain from it. I promise!
