ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Andrew is the creator, writer, and illustrator of the Lost Sheep series. Way back in 1989 as a young Bible college student, Andrew was asked to give the dreaded “children’s talk” at a large church. Andrew possessed one talent: he could draw sheep. He bought some overhead projector sheets and drew up the story of Cecil and the Lost Sheep. T he congregation loved it, so Andrew continued to draw stories to use with kids and adults. Other students, pastors, and teachers started borrowing the stories.

My personal thoughts on this book: Asher seemed to enjoy this book and I thought it was an easy way for children to understand how much Jesus loves them. I must admit that the kids on skateboards and the way the characters talked felt weird to me. I understand the concept of making the book a more modern way of sharing this Bible story with children, but I guess I just prefer the more traditional form. Seeing as the book isn't geared toward me, but toward children, I think it does do a good job of making the story easy to understand. So, overall, I think it's a good book.
