About the book:

     The Millennial Kingdom is a wondrous time to be born into. The world is at peace and has become like the Garden of Eden; beautiful, exciting, and ruled by the Great King Himself who sits on His throne in the golden-street city of Glorania. In such a perfect place, who would expect thieves to prowl at night? It’s those two fumblers again, Lester Mudd and Castor Grout. This time the troublemakers intend to steal a special gift entrusted to Adam Beam by the Great King. Luckily, Adam is startled awake during the burglary. Lester and Castor panic and escape through a carelessly drawn Dream Door, accidentally landing on Noah’s Ark at the time of the Great Flood. It doesn’t take Adam long to figure out where the thieves have gone. At once Adam, his sister Sonia, and their pet Siberian Tiger Toby are in hot pursuit to recover the stolen treasure, only to learn that the gift has fallen into the raging flood waters and is permanently lost. Well, maybe not permanently. Adam has an idea how to find the precious gift, but it will take some clever Dream Doodling, the help of Noah and his family, a navy of friendly sea creatures, and . . . a submarine Dream Doodled from the far future. Naturally, the evil Evils intend to do all within their power to stop Adam from completing his mission.

My review:

     This is a delightful children’s Christian fantasy story!

     It was fun to return to the millennial kingdom of The Great King. I really like Adam, Zonia, and their pet tiger Toby. They are wonderful characters with a great attitude toward doing what they are asked. It was interesting to see how the fact that not everyone in the millennium would be doing the right thing was worked into this book.

     This time they are sent to visit Noah and his family on the ark. They face danger and difficult situations that they have to figure out. At times Noah is the one with answers. But in many ways it is the children themselves that come up with the solutions. The imagination of the authors really shows up in all the details that they suggest for the ark itself. It was a really fun book to read.

     This charming book is getting a rating of 5 stars from me. I am recommending it. It is a fun twist for learning the story of Noah’s ark.
