Some reviews by readers.
"Hardy authored the story in a manner that is easy & simple for children to comprehend yet captivating with its twists & turn of events. The book also conveyed & taught children foundational Christian values. In my child's very own words, the book is very interesting & she likes the fact that she can learn from the solutions to the problems that surfaced in the story. The definition of tougher words at the bottom of the page is so useful & thoughtful!" ~ Kim Peng & Lee Keng, Parents of 3 daughters.
"Before reading about this book, Simon is just another familiar name in the bible. Whilst its a fictional book, the book gives me a background of who this little known bible character is, and why Simon is called 'the Zealot' when Jesus calls out the 12. The book also gives me an understanding of the culture and background during Jesus' time, and why the jews hated the tax collectors so much.
I love the twist at the end of the story, how Jesus saves the day and how Simon, amidst all his mistakes could find forgiveness and start afresh.
The cartoons in the book are nicely created with very bright colours suitable to capture children's attention. However there is a slight yellowish tinge to the pages.....but still amazing work." ~ Venny Yuliany
