The Dangerous Journey of Sherman the Sheep, by Dean Davis, Cladach Publishing, 2005, Kindle Edition, 2011, 160 Pages, ISBN-0-975961926, $9.99

Sherman, a carefree young ram tired of hanging out with the spring lambs, wanted something more. Although warned never to go up on dangerous Sin Mountain, the large mountain peak in the distance intrigued Sherman once he learned it was dangerous. To Sherman, “…danger was just another word for adventure…the one thing Sherman loved best!”

When his father Bertram couldn’t find the young ram to join in the evening’s festivities “…he rose up on his hind legs, leaned against a tree…and saw Sherman on the far side of the meadow with strangers”

Bertram’s heart cautiously warmed at the thought his restless son had found new friends, yet he knew few strangers…Full Review: http://tinyurl.com/6qdbhey

I will recommend this book to everyone! Wonderful way to tell of God's love for us. Creates powerful images -perfect for sharing with children the Journey we are on in this lifetime. & of course of Christ's love & leading as our Good Shepherd. I loved that this book had my 8 year old & I laughing & crying together. Sharing life's stories & lessons along the way as we read it together. Awesome tool for spreading the Gospel. LOVED it!!!

"I enjoy having audio versions of books for my children and I to listen to while driving or doing chores around the house, or even just to listen to in lieu of watching television and I have to say that The Dangerous Journey of Sherman The Sheep fits the bill for all of the above. Written by Dean Davis and read by Katie Leigh you and your children will be swept up in the telling of the tale of Sherman who must learn the hard way what the Shepherd wants for him and his life. That's usually the way of things though - that sometimes we just don't listen and make life harder on ourselves and even those around us. Children will be able to relate to Sherman, a young sheep, who doesn't want to listen to dad and who wants to have lots of friends even if they are the wrong friends, because he's young and wants to have fun.

Katie Leigh's voice sort of lulls one into a quite repose as they listen to her reading the story, and it works to calm the nerves of children who may otherwise be running wild around the house. I found my children got pulled into the story and really enjoyed listening to it, even though there aren't any sound effects or even many voice changes like they are used to in some audio dramas/books. It runs 2 hours and 48 minutes but you don't have to listen all at once because you can add bookmarks to where you leave off so you can pick up where you left off - making it great if you have to attend to something and need to stop listening. Younger children may not quite grasp the allegorical aspect of the story, but it's never to early to start talking to them about God's Ways and following Him and this is great way to start doing that in a way that everyone relates to - story telling.

** I was given an audio copy of this from Cladach Publishing in exchange for posting my own opinion, no other compensation was given.

"This is the story of Sherman, a young sheep who feels himself getting too old to hang around with the young lambs, and is looking for something more. Having grown up in the Good Shepherd’s flock, he has now made friends with sheep from other flocks, and their tales of the fun that they have found on Pleasure Mountain make him dream of making the journey himself. And so, in spite of his father’s warnings, he sets off to find out just what is at the top of that mountain. But, it is a journey that will take him through misadventures he has never dreamed of, and into dangers beyond his greatest fears. Will the Good Shepherd help him? Can he?

Christian literature has a wonderful tradition of allegorical stories, the most famous of which is John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress (unless you include C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia). Following in that great tradition is Dean Davis’s Dangerous Journey of Sherman the Sheep. This book is written for tweens, nine- to twelve-year-olds, who are stretching their wings, and looking with wide eyes on a non-Christian/post-Christian world with many dangers and temptations.

Overall, I found this to be a charming book with a great lesson. But, don’t get the idea that this book is baby stuff. The book uses allegory, but makes clear the dangers that a young person faces in the world. Overall, I think that this is a great book, one that should be given to all Christian parents with tweens, or youngsters approaching those tween years.
