Review by Ben Patterson
The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name disproves the adage that you can't judge a book by its cover.
Jago's award-winning cover art is a foretaste of the whimsically insightful and richly colored drawings that await you on every one of the book's 351 pages. The illustrations alone are worth the price of the book.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a British born children's book writer living in New York City. I came to the States from the UK in 1989--just for a year. I"m still here. I have worked for several years as the publisher of Christian Children's Books for Reader's Digest before leaving in 2000 to write full time. I have written three other best-selling children's Bibles: Baby's First Bible; A Child's First Bible; and The Lift-The-Flap Bible. I can be found at sallylloyd-jones.com
What was your motivation behind this project? I wrote this so children could know that God is for them and loves them with a Never Stopping, Never Giving up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the Story beneath all the stories of the Bible. It takes the whole Bible to tell the Story. And at the center of the Story, there is a baby, the Child upon whom everything would depend. From Noah to Moses to King David, every story whispers his name. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle--the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? As far as writers go: C S Lewis, Edward Lear, A A Milne, James Marshall, to name just a very few... and teachers: Dr Timothy Keller, pastor of my church in New York City; Fredreck Buechner; Helmut Thielecke; Brennan Manning

You see, the best thing about this story is--it's true. It takes the whole Bible to tell this story. And at the center of the Story there is a baby. Every story in the Bible whispers his name. He is like the missing piece in a puzzle--the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together and suddenly you can see a beautiful picture. And this is no ordinary baby. This is the Child upon whom everything would depend. This is the baby that would one day-- but wait, our story starts where all good stories start. Right at the very beginning..."
