About the Author
The Obadiah books reflect the beauty and simplicity of his Quaker beliefs, which he expressed this way: In writing, I use all sorts of tricks to capture the attention of my young audience: suspense, humor and even charm, when I can muster it. But no matter how successfully I may entertain, I am really up to something else: subversion. My abilities are implacably lined up against the hypocrisy, materialism, and brutality that so pervade our society. As my readers leave childhood behind, I hope that they will carry with them an appreciation for such alternatives as integrity, mutual respect, kindness, and reverence for life. These alternatives are in my books, and I pray that exposure to them will play a part in the construction of a better tomorrow.

The author does a wonderful job showing the interaction between Obadiah and his siblings in the book. The book has a lot of realistic elements to the story and was a rather enjoyable read. We bought it along with "Obadiah the Bold" and "Thy Friend Obadiah" all three were wonderful stories.
