    The Bible Smuggler, written by Louise A. Vernon, is the story of William Tyndale, who translated the New Testament from Latin to English in the sixteenth century, the first person to do so. Tyndale experiences major difficulties and setbacks in his quest to translate the scriptures as his ideas are in direct opposition to those of the head of the Church at that time period. The leaders of the Church of England want to keep the Scriptures available only for the priests and leaders of the Church; Tyndale thinks the Scriptures should be translated into the peoples language so anyone can read them and learn from them. The author gives the biography a bit of an insiders glance into Tyndales life by including Collin Hartley, an English boy who works with Tyndale on his translation project. The story is told from Collins point of view. This makes the reading more interesting for a younger audience, as opposed to a straight biography written for adults. Every other chapter, starting with the first one, has a pencil sketch, by Roger Hane, that illustrates some point or idea from the chapter.What I Like: As Ive mentioned before, I like historical fiction. Its interesting to learn about real-life people when their biographies are written in a fictional manner. What I Dislike: Nothing.Overall Rating: Very good.Age Appeal: 9-12.Christine M.
