Publisher's Description

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 Race to the Ark, Peter, Mary, and their faithful dog Hank travel back to the time of Noah. With only seven days to solve the riddle of the scroll and escape the impending flood, Peter, Mary, and Hank must race to help Noah and his family finish the ark. Along their journey, Peter and Mary evade a group of young ruffians and ultimately come face to face with the Dark Ruler, an evil man who reminds them of a snake they met in the Garden of Eden. Enthralling action and compelling illustrations will have children glued to the pages of this rambunctious Bible-based story.

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.

    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.

    As for its Biblical accuracy, I was in almost everything impressed. Michael the Archangel helps them fend off Satan, coming across as a powerful and wise friend. For nit picky details, there wouldn't have been both lions and tigers on the Ark, they are both in the Cat Kind, and although Noah, Jubal, and Tubal-Cain all have a father named Lamech, they are not all brothers.

    I particularly appreciated how delicately Thomas handled the depravity and violence of the pre-Flood world. It would be easy to take things too far for young readers, but he gave us just enough to understand how rebellious people had become without give us nightmares to deal with.
