Reviews

Byous (Because I Stubbed My Toe) and Jack (A Pirate's Mother Goose) offer a whirlwind tour of the biblical creation story that's more Dr. Seuss than King James (the book's scripture references actually derive from the New International Version). Opening with a question aimed at readers ('Hey! Where did you come from?/ And what about me?'), Byous follows a portly redheaded man and a pair of children on what seems to be a trip back in time to reveal 'how it all began.

-shaped helicopter and a flying boat held up by balloons. Byous keeps his exclamatory rhymes light and upbeat ('And look! What a hoot!/ Today, God made fruit!'), and Jack's cartoons have the loose energy of storyboard sketches. While there's a slight disconnect between text and art (the unnamed, Willy Wonka-esque man is an unusual choice of guide), it's still a playfully engaging introduction to this Bible story. Ages 4-8. Illustrator's agency: Shannon Associates. Publishers Weekly
