Goat Boy, a.k.a. Gideon, is the kid everyone loves to pick on. He's like any typical Bible-time boy who spends his life traveling around Palestine milking goats, giving Roman soldiers a hard time, and getting into trouble on more than one occasion. Goat Boy is curious, enjoys a good adventure, and has a couple of mildly irritating friends. What's not so typical is how he and his friends are in the right place at the right time to witness the amazing miracles and teachings of Jesus.
Witty, insightful, wacky. These are just a few words to describe Bob Hartman's latest chapter-book series, Goat Boy Chronicles. In this unique collection of stories, Goat Boy and his friends experience the miracles of Jesus through their awkward adolescent eyes. The boys laugh, they make jokes, they observe, they puzzle over everything that Jesus does, and in their own quirky ways they become the eyes and ears of the reader as they witness the unfolding of the gospel story.
Bob Hartman's passion is to retell Bible stories accurately and in a way that will help kids want to read them time and time again. Not just because the stories are ?good for them? but because they are so creative, so clever, and so enthralling that they just can?t help themselves!
Bob Hartman is the author of the best-selling Lion Storyteller series and a number of picture book retellings of favourite stories including: The Wolf who Cried Boy and Dinner in the Lions' Den and the highly acclaimed Angels, Angels all around. Sales of his books are in excess of one million copies. Bob divides his time between writing and storytelling in schools and libraries.
