Description

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.
