In this particular story, Paladin seeks adventure in a place where he knows he shouldn't go. Thinking he will be safe, he exits the village Shaddai has built through a hole in the wall.
I find this to be an excellent resource when I am discussing the issue of sin with children. God creates the boundaries of safety for all of us. But God allows the openings and the choices we make, as Shaddai says "I want the children to stay because they want to, not because they have to."
We have freedom to choose ...
An excellent resource for all trying to convey the idea of freedom of choice and its consequences to children.
I thought it was another of the author's "Wemmick" books, which I find to be fantastic! I prefer those, though--both in story line and whatever illustrator he had for those.
Overall, still a good book, just not my personal FAVORITE of his children's books that I've read.
