Editorial Reviews


"Funny, imaginative and moving...  We loved it...  The characters feel as if they're there in front of you...  definitely a recommended read for 8-13 year olds"  New Wine Magazine (issue 66, page 45)

"Innovative approach to a well known historical era, told in a light-hearted way and in a voice ideal for the pre-teen reader...  an entertaining story, fun and informative...  a really enjoyable read, even for an adult"  Readers' Favorite

"Adding a mixture of humour and drama, Hay provides a child's-eye-view of the events of the New Testament...  An enjoyable and uplifting story"  Mr B Reads (book blog)

From the Author

JAIRUS'S GIRL will be part of a series called The Young Testament, a kids'-eye view of the whole Jesus story, each with a different child as the main character.  In this book we see the Galilee side of events, with eleven-year-old Tammie as our sparky protagonist.
To begin with I thought it would only be two books, but as JAIRUS'S GIRL got closer to publication I realised it's actually five!
Right now I have flipped back in time thirty-something years from JAIRUS'S GIRL and am having great fun writing the prequel - JOSEPH'S BOY - which takes us to Nazareth and Bethlehem, with six-year-old Jamie as our hero.
It shouldn't be too much longer in the making, so follow me here if you'd like to be notified when it comes out!
