The Devil's Mawby Mr Frits D Haverkamp, Mrs Catherine Haverkamp (Illustrator)
Seth and Noah have their summer vacation unexpectedly interrupted when a letter from their Mamaw arrives inviting them for a stay at her farm. A mamaw they didn't know they had. Inexplicably and without an explanation their fearful and resigned parents pack them up and drop them off at the front steps of their mamaw's dilapidated house on a dry, dusty and dead farm in the middle of nowhere. What is going on?
The Devil's Maw is the story of the boys week long struggle and triumph on their mamaw's farm. Each day mamaw cruelly manipulates the animals left on the farm in order to collect their misery, cook it up in a large pot and dump it down the old rock well outside the house. Meet Cockscrow the rooster, his suspicious brother, Cainsfoot, Old Paw the hound, King Weeble Wooble the once mighty turtle king and mamaw's enforcer the snake Miss Susie in this classic coming of age story.
The Devil's Maw is an adolescent Christian fantasy that adapts great stories and characters of the Bible and enfleshes them in the animals on the farm. Perfect for the young reader the Devil's Maw will non-the-less interest readers of all ages. Written from an unapologetic Christian perspective the theology is unassuming and approachable by all theologies and faith perspectives.
