This is a wonderful allegory expressing truths about the Kingdom of God. The pictures are beautiful. My kids are completely hooked as I read it aloud to them. (I have 4 kids, ages 4-9.) Even the adults in the house get completely sucked into the story. It really helps us stop and consider life from God's perspective. I would highly recommend this for anyone ages 4 and up!
I grew up reading this book over and over till it was completely worn through. Now with a young daughter of my own I am thrilled to see it back in publication with the original illustrations. My daughter loves the stories as much as I did and even at eight years old understands that the Enchanted City represents Hell and the Great Park is Heaven.
I read this book to my 3 children and am now buying each of them one to read to my grandchildren. I can't say enough about the way these stories present biblical truths that opens the door for discussion to deep concepts in ways they can understand.
