“This book takes the point of view of Lahmi, one of Goliath’s four brothers,” said Kay. The book’s main character reveals who trained David to kill with his sling, why David picked up five stones, and what David did with Goliath’s armor and sword.
“David was sure of himself and knew that he would only need one stone to kill Goliath, so why did he pick up five stones? This illustrated children’s book reveals that secret and even how big the stones were,” says Kay. Little known facts are presented in an adventure children will remember for a lifetime, because it’s told from a whole new point of view.
