“The Giant Leaf” and “Fire Fish”
A New Perspective on Bible Stories
If you haven’t discovered the work of artist and storyteller Davy Liu, you need to explore his earlier “Giant Leaf” where a plucky little fox is the chief hero and his brand new “Fire Fish,” where a family of perch swim up to a heroic challenge.
Liu is helping to pioneer a creative approach to children’s books about Bible stories. First of all, you’ll find that reviewers (myself included) don’t tend to reveal details of the specific Bible stories Liu is reviving. Part of the amazement in his books involves discovering which ancient stories you’ll encounter.
He starts his books by trying to envision what spiritual forces may have been at work in the natural world at the time of these epic events in the Bible. He’s not pushing doctrine here. He’s trying to enlarge our creative perspectives on biblical accounts that are so familiar that we’ve lost our sense of awe.
He gets our “Hot Read” honors this week!
