Sunbury Press has released an improved edition of "The Mouse with the Broken Tail" by Dan Shutters and illustrated by Sharon Shiffler. The new edition is in a larger format that can be used for shared reading and education classes.
In this fantasy version of the Exodus, Sam the mouse leads his mouse tribe from the dangers inside the house to the promised land Outside. They must outwit Faro the cat in order to find their freedom. Along the way, the group learns about hard work, creative thinking, and the benefits of self-sacrifice.
This charming tale gently deals with various issues that face children, the power of evil vs. the power of God, the reasons for warnings, faithfulness, and the ability to change among others. Rev. Dan Shutters wrote this parable of the Book of Exodus for use as a series of children's sermons.
“Wow!” says Rob Pizanti in his review on Amazon. “The story immediately captured and kept the attention of children of all ages as we shared a chapter every Sunday for the children's sermon.”
“It’s not religious in the telling of the story but accurate and full of the good news of Biblical Scripture.” Pizanti writes.
Rev. Dan Shutters is a pastor with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. He has been delivering messages for children for most of his ministry. Always in search of unique ways to communicate, he is a member of the Society of American Magicians, performing the stories from his book, "Magic in Ministry". In the early days of home computers he wrote "Farway" as an educational program for Lutheran World Relief which illustrated the problems encountered by bringing wells to African villages.
