Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

It's harvest time in the vineyard and all the grapes are so excited to get picked, especially Little Gordon Grape. He is positive that he will be picked first because when he was watered the master gave him a HUGE smile so he believes that he is his favourite.  Will his dream come true or does God have another plan for his life? 

This sweet book is written by Methodist Minister in Nottingham, Arnold Dixon.  The watercolour illustrations are simple and visually enhance the narrative.  

Little Gordon shakes so much with excitement when he sees the grape pickers arrive that he falls away from the vine and  away from his family.  Thud!  He struggles on the ground and calls out to the pickers and his family but his frantic calls are not heeded.  Little Gordon is left behind all alone in the dirt and he is terribly upset. He cries and cries and finally falls asleep. 

Although he is not picked by the grape pickers he is picked by God Himself through a dream.  In this dream God unveils a very special assignment that only little Gordon can carry out.  God's presence and His message comforts little Gordon's heart.  He assures  the little grape that although his family is gone he will never let him be alone.  God blesses him and sends him forth to grow more fruit which will make the valley even more beautiful.  I love the inspirational message of the book that offers hope and peace to the reader.  I highly recommend this book.
