Reviews for The Young David Books
“A wonderful introduction into the early life of one of the Bible’s great heroes. Insightful writing and fantastic illustrations.” – Geoff Brown, Scripture Union.
“David and the Hairy Beast is a wonderful book, which I read last night with my 7-year-old daughter. Imaginative, funny, clear and with a simple but perfect message for that age (for any age, in fact). Clever stuff, much appreciated. Gorgeous cute illustrations too. I publish Christian books for grown-ups; if I did children's books I'd be keen on taking this on”. – David Moloney, Managing Editor, DLT Publishers.
“The Young David Books are absolutely delightful!... The sheep on every page are pure fun and don’t detract from the fact that these stories are told as near to the Bible story as is possible for this age group. Buy it and see! – Mary Bartholomew, The Goodbookstall
“David and the Hairy Beast has been written and illustrated with great humour and would be great to read aloud as well as being enjoyed by those reading alone. The book introduces David as a boy of nearly seven, and young children will identify with his feelings of frustration at being too small to be allowed to do grown-up things.” – Vicki Howie, author
