The more I read books by R.C. Sproul, the more and more impressed I am. He has a wonderful storytelling style that captures the imagination, and keeps the reader focused on the Lord Jesus Christ. I highly recommend any of his books to Christian families looking for something to read to their small children or for the kids to read for themselves when they reach seven or eight. This story is about a King who is asked a difficult question from a small boy who is a subject in his kingdom. Where do shadows come from? The King is perplexed and seeks answers. On his journey to find out, the king not only discovers why he has a shadow, but he finds there is a King higher than himself that casts no shadow. How? Because this higher King is made of pure Light. The illustrations are nice and have the old world paint style that is a good representation of the age the story is set in. Liz Bonham did a superb job with the king's expressions, not silly, but spot on. In my book "Tales of Wordishure" I tried to write in a way that would capture an adults imagination as well as the childrens. R.C. Sproul obviously shares this same idea because the level of emotion in this story kept me wanting to read more. This is a rare multi-age book and it should be on all our shelves.
