About the book

I love this book.  The illustrations are truly amazing and the text, written in fine rhyme, is a winner.

The author takes a classic story from the Bible, 1 Samuel 17, the story of David vs Goliath, and weaves it into a spell-binding tale that kids will easily understand and enjoy.  He makes it so fun and engaging!   This age-old story is creatively spun to a brand-new generation and is magical to listen to or for a child to read on his own.   

The bold, kid-friendly and playful illustrations will have kids giggling I'm sure and they will visually imprint the story into their minds and hearts as this story is told once again in a refreshing way.      

The story teaches kids about courage and God's willingness to provide strength and victory.  He uses David, a mere youth, to mightily defeat a ten foot-tall warrior Giant named Goliath.  How does David accomplish this impossible feat?  He trusts in God completely to enable him to conquer this menacing foe of Israel.  David takes his sling, five smooth stones and does the possible while God has his back and performs the impossible. Together they kill that taunting, cruel, mocking giant and David stands triumphant over the fallen giant. 

David, a boy after God's own heart, definitely knows the true meaning of the scripture:  "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. - Phillippians 4:13. And he did!!!  I highly recommend this wonderful book.
