Pip, Tommo, and Big Bart are Jesus' funniest disciples.
Not heard of them? Why ever not?
According to Bob Hartman, they attended the wedding of Canna. They meet the Roman Centurion. They saw Jesus raise the widow's son at Nain. They even watched a flock of demonic pigs fly off a cliff edge!
These seven child-friendly stories certainly won't be told from the pulpit, but they will give your 8-11 aged kids the infectious chuckles. The individual stories can be read separately or in one big adventure. 'Best Mates' has the winning combination of hand-written scribbles and slightly gross tales that kids love to read again and again.
Your primary schools kids will find 'Best Mates' laugh-out-loud funny. But alongside the humour, the master storyteller Bob Hartman sheds new light on Jesus through the unlikely trio of hap-hazard pals as they see a man who does the most amazing things and ask - is this the Messiah?
Why not buy 'Best Mates Too' aswell? With another seven brilliant stories, your kids will be chuckling their way into adolescences.

If you enjoy a slightly different perspective on a biblical story of old, then you'll love this gem of a book. But be prepared not to take it all too seriously. It may not be the material of children's talks from the front of church, but it will keep your 8 - 11's chuckling to themselves for hours to come. The combination of Mark Beech's effective line drawings goes hand in hand with the slight 'grossness' of narrative that children of this age seem to enjoy! But at the same time they are stories that you will find in the Bible - if you're willing to delve a little deeper. The seven short chapters or stories can be read independently, or in one go. It certainly made me smile as I looked at some of the bible stories of Jesus in a whole new light.
