Bob Hartman, well-known for his storytelling talents is tackling Bible stories again! Following his popular Storyteller series and his Unauthorized Versions, Bob is retelling stories for a younger audience, but with the same mischievous slant that made the Unauthorized Versions so much fun. Lesser known tales are collected together and packed with dialogue and funny details which are set off by Woody Fox's jaunty line illustrations.
