Inner Light - 2 Corinthians 4:6

In autumn in the U.S. people are carving out pumpkins and putting candles inside of them. It made me think about how, as Christians, God has put His light inside of our hearts.

What are Joyful ‘toons? 

Joyful ‘toons are cartoons that are based on verses from the Bible. Each cartoon consists of a verse  and a cartoon illustration. It is my prayer that they be used to exhort and encourage Christians in their walk with the Lord, and also that they be used to reach out to those who don’t know Jesus as Lord and savior. joyfultoons.com/faq/

About Mike Waters, cartoonist

I began drawing cartoons based on Bible verses in the 1990′s. I have always loved drawing cartoons, and one day the idea came to me for a cartoon that would illustrate the relationship between faith and grace. Not long after, an idea for a second cartoon came to me. I noticed that the back page of the weekly bulletin at my church was often blank, so I approached the pastor with the idea of using my cartoons to fill that space, and he agreed to my proposal. After that, ideas for other cartoons started coming to me, and they became a regular feature of the church bulletin. I then thought of sharing the cartoons, which by this time were called Joyful ‘toons. joyfultoons.com/about/

Thought Sorting - Philippians 4:8

Not every thought that comes into your mind is worth thinking about. We must learn to keep the good thoughts and discard the bad thoughts.

Patient Hen - Hebrews 6:12

It may seem that God’s promise is too big for you to receive. The hen cannot see any change in the egg from day to day, yet she patiently and steadfastly sits on the egg. Then one day, suddenly, the egg cracks, and she receives the fulfillment of the promise.

Derailed - Galatians 5:6

Don’t ever be unwilling to forgive. An unforgiving heart will derail your faith from the track of love.

Tailor - Isaiah 61:10

We cannot attain salvation or righteousness through our own efforts. It is a free gift from God. Through Jesus, we can exchange our sin for His righteousness.

Illustrated by Kelly Murphy

Published by Algonquin Young Readers, A division of Workman Publishing

“A swashbuckling story of two very different cat brothers and their adventures at sea.”

Algonquin Young Readers is a new imprint that features books for readers seven to seventeen. From short illustrated novels for the youngest independent readers to timely and topical crossover young adult fiction, what ties our books together are unforgettable characters, absorbing stories, and superior writing.

A captivating read for either middle school boys or girls (ages 8-12). Told from the alternating views of Anton and Cecil (cats), each chapter is illustrated with a black and white line drawing. Artistic talent done by Kelly Murphy. It was the cover artwork that piqued my interest in the book. Nicely done throughout.

“Winning author Valerie Martin’s and Lisa Martin’s colorful cast of characters, rich historical detail, and lyrical storytelling will delight fans of such classic animal adventures as The Wind in the Willows, Stuart Little, and Poppy.” I love Stuart Little and also The Cricket In Times Square and in my opinion Anton and Cecil is a good story but doesn’t come close to a “classic” adventure. I rate the storytelling as fair but without flair.
