Mary Hoffman and Jackie Morris's new book range tells the stories and fables of Jesus (Otter-Barry Books)

"Lost and Found" gathers together 8 parables from the stories of Jesus including A Tale of Two Houses, Neighbours, Lost and Found, Fair Pay, The Jealous Brother, Sowing and Growing, Come to the Party and Forgiveness.
Mary Hoffman retells the eight parables showing how Jesus used storytelling to explain God’s idea of truth, fairness and love.
With beautiful, atmospheric illustrations by Jackie Morris, this is a perfect introduction to the teachings of Jesus.
Also in the range is "Walking on Water: Miracles Jesus Worked"...
The nine stories of the miracles Jesus worked, when he overturned the laws of nature, life and death to show God’s great love for humanity, are gorgeously presented in this luxurious book - again with beautiful illustrations from Jackie Morris.
Whether you have any faith of your own or not, these are fantastic books for children, introducing them to bible stories in a surprisingly non-preachy way.
Even if (like us) you treat them as story / fable books, they're utterly gorgeous.
"Lost and Found" and "Walking on Water" by Mary Hoffman and Jackie Morris are out now, published by Otter-Barry Books (kindly sent for review).
