This book is a must have for little boys!

This book is so fabulous! It grabbed all of our boys attention right of the bat, which is hard to do! (They are 7, 4,and 2 years old) The pictures are wonderful, large and really capture a boys heart. The story is engaging and full of great metaphors that are easy for children to follow. Our boys love it so much we ready it quite regularily and we have bought them each their own copy.

A Fantastic Book on Biblical Obedience for Children

This is a wonderful book with a very simple and important message - heed the Word of God in all things. The young squire in the book succeeds where all others fail by following the words of his "scroll" and keeping himself pure - thus saving the entire kingdom from evil. All of my children are captivated by this story - my boy and my girls, from the 7 year old right down to the 2 year old. This book makes it very easy to teach children about how God's laws are made to protect them and keep them happy - and about the importance of following God's laws. This has quickly become a favorite book at our house and we give it as a gift to every child we know - which has delighted the children and their parents alike. I also highly recommend "The Princess and the Kiss" by the same author - another priceless aide in raising up our children for God.

An exciting book with an important lesson.

I bought this book for my son's 5th birthday. He asks me to read it to him nearly every night. The story of knights and dragons engages him, as it is so exciting. And the beautiful illustrations keep his attention focused on the book as I read to him. He often wants to look at the book on his own before going to sleep. I'm so impressed with Ms. Bishop's writing. The story grabs my son's attention at the very first page, and keeps the story moving. Even though I was afraid the book was a little lengthy for him to listen to, he was hooked. Also, the book shows how important it is to guard one's heart especially by what you hear and see. This principle is woven into the story so well, and not sugar-coated.

Wonderful book for "future men"

This is a tale of the importance of guarding your heart from evil. I bought this as a Christmas present for my two sons, ages (both nearly) 4 and 6. While it was a bit over the head of my 4yo it certainly captured my nearly 6yo's attention. The kingdom in the book relies on the Lantern of Purest Light for peace and joy in the land. An evil dragon steals it and many seek to recover it, only to be lost themselves. The king sends his last and most trusted knight (along w/ his squire) to retrieve the lamp lest the kingdom perish. The squire was raised according to a scroll by parents who honored the Lantern while the knight is aware of it but doesn't allow it to dictate his actions. Who (I wonder...) will survive the perilous journey to the dragon's lair and bring the lantern back? This is a Christian allegory that illustrates 5 main concepts in Christian living (i.e. keeping your gaze focused and not turning to the left or right) and it ends (in very tiny print) with a quote from Psalm 119:9. While it is aimed at young boys, it also serves as a reminder to parents to raise their young squires rightly, too. Highly recommended book. I also appreciated the sturdy hardcover binding.

Pure!

This is a wonderful story of how to guard your senses from impurity. A young squire goes out to rescue the lamp of purity which has been stolen by a dragon. A wonderful book to add to your collection!
