This short tale depicts the story of David and Goliath, immortalized into a prose suitable for young readers. The artwork is touch up, resembling watercolors, but the story stays true to form. I was not particularly amused by this early reader. David, a young boy is shepard of the flock. As his community is threatened by the Giant, whom no man before him is capable of defeating, young David steps up. HIs brother, apart of the army attempts to discourage him, but David insists, launching a rock between the eyes of the Giant with his sling shot. The Giant falls, and David becomes King for his audacious action. The continuity, although satisfactory, did not draw me in as I flipped through its pages. As far as early readers are concerned, this is an allright depiction of the biblical tale of David and Goliath, but lacks the ability to keep one interested. ( )
