Synopsis: Cheeper is the story of an orphaned baby robin, thrown from his nest in a summer storm and rescued, raised, and released back into the wild by the Brown family. Cheeper’s life gets even better when he meets Lady Robin and starts his adventure south to weather the winter. A sudden and terrible tragedy, however, shatters Cheeper’s rosy, self-centered view of life and forces him to deal with sorrow, loneliness, and pain. What will happen to him? Will he learn the important lessons of dealing with suffering? Will sorrow triumph, or will song? This beautifully illustrated book will warm your heart!
Age: The book is 130 pages long and is geared towards the Primary-Junior age range; however, I do believe the story and the message will speak to all ages. The book is in black and white, with numerous illustrations done in charcoal (example below), while the cover is a full-color oil painting of Cheeper.
Available: Cheeper is available in paperback and e-book formats from Amazon, here.
Synopsis: One dirty pup. One friendly missionary. When the two meet, a bond is formed. The missionary takes the puppy home and cleans him up. The pup loves his new home and master, but he still loves playing in the mud! He is torn between obeying his master and doing what he thinks is fun. Then one day his fun gets him into a heap of trouble! Can the little pup be saved? Will his master rescue him? Sin and salvation. Repentance and forgiveness. Children will learn about these important biblical concepts through the fully illustrated, TRUE story of a naughty pup and a loving master in The Prodigal Pup.
Age: Although geared towards children, this book is good for anyone who has struggled with sin–in other words, everyone!
