Introducing Maude Cary

For Jamal and Hameem, The Game starts out as a fun and daring contest between the two young boys to see who can collect more items belonging to the "enemy"--the French soldiers who are keeping Morocco from gaining its independence. For a Muslim to be seen with anything belonging to the infidels is among the most punishable of sins, but the excitement of The Game calls to the adventurous boys, who even risk swiping belongings right off of the French soldiers.

The Game becomes more risky when Jamal begins collecting pictures from the Christian missionary Maude Cary, whom he meets in the marketplace, Surely a whole set of the pictures must be worth enough points to win The Game! Then jamal realizes that each picture tells a story bout Jesus, and he's torn between believing the missionary's stories and believing the Muslim way. When a French traitor comes to Jamal for help, will he lead Jamal to the Truth?

IS BECOMING A CHRISTIAN WORTH LOSING HIS FAMILY?

An adventure story, ideal for readers 8-12 years of age.

Editorial Reviews

Provident Book Finder, Sept/Oct 2000 - Peter J. Dycky
Say “history” and many people yawn. Say “novel” and others think the book’s not true. But everyone loves a good story about real people and actual events touched with a dab of fantasy. I was about to ask the authors what was true and what was not, but their books have a page answering exactly that question. That is most helpful. Dave and Neta Jackson are masters in writing historical novels…for ages 8-12, though many adults can’t resist.
NR Book Service, 4/28/04 - National Review
There’s no better way to introduce your 8 to 14 year olds to Christian heroes than through these exciting works of historical fiction. Each narrative brings today’s youngsters into close contact with a man or woman of faith as seen through the eyes of a child whose life intersects in a dramatic way with the famous Christian. The stories give accurate portrayals both of history and of the character of the Christian hero while holding kids captive to a tale of adventure.
