- We can order this
Have you ever wondered what it must have been like to be an eye witness of major bible events?
Some people were! What if there had been a newspaper at that time?
Here Ruth Maclean writes the key Old Testament stories as if there had been a newspaper around at those times. Children find this style easy to read and understand. Fun cartoons and illustrations by Neil Stewart make the learning experience even more enjoyable.
The front page story is about Enoch's disappearance, whilst the back page is devoted to Elijah's escape from Ahab. Excellent cartoon illustrations compliment each of the stories.
Sections within the book are also just like a newspapers and include Travel and Tourism, News Abroad, Local News, Got a Problem? and a Special Feature.

All the conventions of magazine writing have been well employed, including headlines, fact-files, problem pages, editorials and news flashes. The three illustrators have really hit the mark with pictures, photos and cartoons, which are often very amusing.
The children I tried this book with couldn't put it down.
