Synopsis

Old Testament Tales: The Unauthorized Versions by Bob Hartman

Popular storyteller Bob Hartman is renowned for his fresh take on often-told stories, bringing them to life with vibrant characters and a lively twist in the tale. Bob now launches a new series of stories - The Unauthorized Versions - which are packed full of humour, mischief, silliness, and fun - but which all have a good-hearted and memorable conclusion. These easy-to-read Old Testament stories are inspired by the Bible - but given a completely original slant. Retold at a cracking pace, this black and white line illustrated book (in a style perfectly matched to Bob's mischievous storytelling) makes an ideal read for those who prefer something a little more wayward on their bookshelves, particularly boys aged 7-9.

Reviews

Told with tongue firmly in cheek, children and adults alike will be greatly amused by this set of stories. Laughter will definitely result ... -- Rudolf Loewenstein School Library Association
