I bought this book for my often-hard-to-please nephews (ages 8 and 10). They fell in love with these funny poems and the quirky line art and became engrossed with the grosser side of the Bible.
I've never heard Bible stories told this way. After reading each of these story-poems, the boys were revved up to read the originals straight from the Bible to learn the full stories. It's a great, strange introduction to Scripture that should get even the most reluctant readers excited and eager for more. I think even kids as young as 6 or 7 would like this book too.
The unusual storytelling angle and fun art reminder me of Shel Silverstein's classic kid's poetry books. You won't regret buying this!
