Tales of The Kingdom - Book Review

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

   Tales of the Kingdom, written by David and Karen Mains and illustrated by Zhivko Zhelev, is 84 pages full of inspirational stories of multi-ethnic modern fairy tales to teach children and adults. Each story teaches on morals with good and evil, and the significance for trusting in God.

   There are 12 chapters filled with different characters looking for their worth. From Scarboy and his brother, Little Child, in The Enchanted City. They try to escape the evil of the town, and find what they were looking for in the end. Then there's the Girl Named Dirty who lived with pigs and boasted on her dirtiness. She wanted to make a change after she realized she didn't want to live in filth after all. There's the Baker Who Loved Bread who began to share his bread with others once the King explained the pain he feels when others hurt. There are so many other characters... All of the stories work together and form a metaphorical interpretation of stories in the Bible. It's packed full of adventure and lessons with teaching behind each. I enjoyed the illustrations each story carried, though the book was really hard for me to get interested in. I didn't find the stories very appealing, though you might if you're interested in a science fiction-esque genre. It is said to compare with books such as The Chronicles of Narnia and Pilgrims Progress. The art was my favorite part of the book, as it was done with great detail and color.

You can find Tales of The Kingdom available for purchase on Amazon also visit KingdomTales.com for more books and information.
