Synopsis

50 Barmiest Bible Stories by Andy Robb

A disco diva king, a prophet who became a bear's lunch, a monarch with 1,000 wives to please, a bunch of rebels who were burned to a cinder...loads of pretty barmy things happened in Bible times! Andy Robb, author of the Professor Bumblebrain series, has collected together the barmiest passages of Scripture in 50 Barmiest Bible Stories . Andy's witty and conversational style, plus colourful illustrations, brings God's Word to life for children. Among the collection are the stories of how the universe kicked off; how the Israelites escaped from Egypt and spent forty years grumbling in the desert; how Jesus was God's chosen man to sort out the mess humankind had made of the world; what the good and bad kings of Israel got up to. Each story has a cliff-hanger ending and a Bible passage to look up to find out what happened next. The Bible tells us about some extraordinary events, and this book will help to introduce readers to the extraordinary God who lies behind those events.

About the Author

Andy Robb

Andy Robb was born in Devon. Once he realised that he was too short to be taken seriously as a costumed hero, he decided to spend as much time as he could playing make-believe. After training as an actor, he went on to appear in stage plays, TV dramas and films, including 'The Woman in Black' with Daniel Radcliffe, released in 2011, and 'Coronation Street' (as Brian Tilsley’s murderer). Whilst acting Andy wrote a number of pieces for stage, television and radio before a chance encounter with best-selling author Alex Garland inspired him to start writing fiction.

Geekhood is his debut novel. Andy lives on a house boat on the Thames.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
