Fantastic book!
This book is great!!!
Lovely book. Thanks
What a great book. ..its very useful for my life. Thanks
Great Graphics and pictures really clear text.
Great book and great guy
a book worthy of a prize. Children will really enjoy it
I read the short extract and found it to be a book that most people will be able to read and understand. The illustration reminded me of the time I visited Mary Jones cottage, now a ruin, and her grave. What a remarkable young determined woman she was who certainly travelled 'through many dangers toils and snares'.
Inspiring and heart-warming
A great book, which tells this great story of faith equally through great prose and great illustrations.
An excellent re-telling of this once well-known Welsh story. It's written in a clear, concise style suitable for younger children to have it read to them or for the more advanced reader to read for themselves. The artwork supports the story very well and the book itself is beautifully produced. My 4 year old thoroughly enjoyed it - and is looking forward to more stories from the 'Tales of Truth' series.
Great book!
Amazing story!
My daughter loved this book and is patiently waiting for the next one in this format. both the text and the pictures bring the story to life.
An excellent Book! A fantastic way to bring to life a much loved story. Well Done!
