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 overheard projector sheets and drew up the story of Cecil and the Lost Sheep. The congregation loved it, so Andrew continued to draw stories to use with kids and adults. Other student, pastors, and teachers started borrowing the stories.

MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:
This book is based on John 15 and Romans 11. It shows how the Gardener (God the Father) grafts us (wild branches) into His Vine (Jesus) so that we may have new life and be able to bear much fruit. It's about trust and about the sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross. I enjoyed reading this book to my boys. The words are easy to understand and the pictures are vibrantly colorful and fun to look at. Delightful little book!
