James W. Shrimpton, The King and the Dragon (Wheaton: Crossway Books, 2022), 32 pp.
The King and the Dragonis a creative tale for children. James W. Shrimpton teams up with Helena Perez Garia, a world-class illustrator in her own right. The story is about a King with a great golden throne. A Dragon tries to usurp the King’s throne and deceive his people. Thankfully, a child is born who grew up and fought the Dragon. The Dragon defeated the Knight but rose again on the third day, to rule with the King on his throne.
The purpose of the book is to give parents a creative tool to share with their children the story about God’s redemptive plan that unfolds with the birth, life, death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The King and the Dragon is a creative book, short enough to keep the attention of small children, and helps parents begin to put the pieces of redemptive history together in a way that is understandable for children.
