"A story a prepubescent boy would love, with plenty of blood and piles of arms and made up Nephite curse replacements. iPlates would be the perfect baptism gift for an eight-year-old boy." Shelah Mastny Miner, Shelah Books It
iPlates "piqued my grumpy tween into devouring a scripture story and raving about it to his friends. No joke." Tracy McKay, Dandelionmama.com

"This book was awesome. I even took it to school and showed it to some of my friends. I might even like reading scriptures if I could read them all this way. I can't wait for the next one." Jeffrey M, age 11, hater of scripture study.

I want my kids to have fun with learning, but not with learning a false storyline.
So, just tell your kids its not 100% true and just enjoy the story and art.
It can be a bit discomforting, using 21st century speech patterns and attitudes for people from 600-300 BC, but it does make it more entertaining - and possibly a bit more readable for just plain folks. The art, nicely inspired by (but not swiped from) Eisner, combines cartoony stylizing with realistic expression of character and action.
Oddly enough, though less "orthodox" than Mike Allred's gorgeous Book of Mormon graphic novel(s), this adaptation actually evokes the spirit and tension of the original sources. Future movie adaptations should take note!
Remarkably done. Bravo Stephen and Jeff!!
I have enjoyed this so much I have now started buying it as a Christmas gift for others. Anyone who has been on the edge about buying their own set of iPlates should stop thinking about it, buy one for themselves, and then buy one for someone else!
