Preacher Creature Strikes on Sunday review & GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to MJ and Amanda for winning this great book! Winners were chosen through random.org.


Product Description (from Zonderkidz.com)

What does church look like to a child who hasn’t been there before? Can he survive hard benches called pews, a preacher who preaches for hours, days, or weeks, not to mention the outrageous Bible stories? With humor and love for the church, the creators of the Black Lagoon series show readers what church is really like.

From the Back Cover
With hilarious stories and nutty pictures, the Tales from the Back Pew series offers kid’s a unique view of church. Enjoy plenty of giggles with your child—and learn fun, important truths about God, church, and the Bible.

"Mom is taking me to church this Sunday. I’ve heard a lot about church. You have to stand up, sit down, and kneel a hundred times. It’s called being in the service—I’m too young to be drafted!"

Mike Thaler- Author
Known as the Riddle King of America, Mike Thaler is the author of the popular Black Lagoon books and the Heaven and Mirth series. He lives in Portland, Oregon, and travels nationally, speaking in schools, libraries, and churches.

MY REVIEW


Preacher Creature Strikes on Sunday by Mike Thaler is an absolutely delightful book! I laughed out loud several times. I read it to my kids and they enjoyed it. I read it to grandma and she thought it was hilarious. The illustrations by Jared Lee perfectly fit the tone of the book- they are brightly coloured and fun! I think this book should absolutely be in every library, in every Sunday school classroom, and given to every child that has ever been nervous about attending church :) This is my first introduction to Mike Thaler's writing and I fully intend to read every book of his that I can find now! Preacher Creature Strikes on Sunday is a wonderfully entertaining look at church through the eyes of a child :)

I was just laughing with the introduction. We are back row Baptists and somehow all of the boys from the church sit in our pew (sometimes 5 boys between the ages of 4-9). This would be great for them to pass back and forth. Thank you
