Best-selling author Bob Hartman is renowned for his original take on often-told stories. In The Unauthorized Versions he offers fresh and witty retellings of Bible stories from new perspectives. These tales are full of humor, mischief, and silliness but all have a good-hearted and memorable conclusion. Fast-paced and illustrated throughout with fun, age-appropriate black-and-white line drawings, these books make an ideal read for boys ages 7-9, reluctant readers, and those who just like something a little different on their bookshelves.
