The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls series follows siblings Peter and Mary and their dog, Hank, as they discover ancient scrolls that transport them back to key moments in biblical history.

In the first adventure in the series, Peter and Mary find themselves witnesses to the creation of the world just as God is speaking it into existence. Can they unlock the mystery of the scrolls before they get trapped in history forever?

Riveting text and engaging illustrations bring this beloved Bible story to riotous life.

Author Bio

Mike Thomas grew up in Florida playing sports and riding his bike to the library and an arcade named the Cosmic Cowboy. He graduated from Liberty University, earning a bachelor’s degree in Bible Studies. When his son Peter was nine years old, Mike went searching for books that would teach Peter about the Bible in a fun, imaginative way. Finding none, he decided to write his own series. Mike Thomas lives in Tennessee with his wife, Lori; two sons, Payton and Peter; and their dog, Hank.

    So, my specialty is creation science. I love to dig deep into the subtle nuances of the Biblical text and find obscure details in the natural world that give us more insight into how God created and the Fall of Man as well as the Flood impacted all of life. But I'm a mom of many young siblings. My kids aren't nearly as intrigued by all things creation.

    This book meets them where they are at and pulls them alongside Peter to explore the Bible in an exciting way. Mike Thomas captures the vocabulary and length budding readers need to get them over the hump of becoming avid readers beautifully. He understands how to sprinkle his story with cliffhangers and revelations, action and discovery like a pro.

    Reading this book out loud takes about ninety minutes. And is it ever fun to do the characters! A good reader will find this a pleasant afternoon excursion. A developing reader will find plenty of short chapters to give them a sense of accomplishment and even suspense to keep them going longer than they otherwise might.

    As for its Biblical accuracy, I was quite impressed. They didn't see any dinosaurs, which surprised me, but although several cliffhangers involved scary animals, each time it turned into a false alarm. Michael the Archangel helps them fend off Satan, coming across as a powerful and wise friend. In fact, the only things that pulled me out of the story were a couple of days that seemed way to short for the amount of narrative.

    Because the book has such a young audience, it has to skim over things that other books should include. The characters verge on the stereotypical, but each with just enough of a twist to feel them as individuals. Considering the limitations Thomas set for himself I find his take easy and refreshing.

    Fantastic! I so enjoyed reading this children's book. This would be one that if my boys were still young I would read it to them or have them read it for themselves. If they ever have children I will recommend this series. This is the first book of a new series and I am so looking forward to more stories with Peter and his sister Mary and their Great -Uncle Solomon. This reminds me a bit of the magic tree house series but here you get to learn more about bible stories. It is very well done. I received this book from Worthy Publishing for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
