Hardcover, 64 pages
Published 2014 by Disney-Hyperion

Love the title. Sometimes many times it’s so true, even for adults. This book is both educating and entertaining. It’s the 22nd book in the Elephant & Piggy series. Comic-style book for early readers (ages 4-8). I love the simple illustrations (expressive). And the beautiful ending. (Sky Watching is a great way to see some of God’s awesome handiwork) I’d recommend this series for getting young readers hooked on books. A 5 star book.

Disney-Hyperion provided this complimentary copy for review purposes. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.

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.

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.

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.
