What happens when we reject the way God intends for us to live and try to create a life of our own choosing? In this memorable yet tragic tale, Pygo finds out the hard way that freeing himself from God’s design only leads to destruction.
Steven Warhurst lives on a homestead in East Tennessee with his wife, Susan. They have eight children whose ages span two decades and a dog named Hank. Steven loves the Lord Jesus and his family.
“Children will be delighted with the musical cadences and the humorous illustrations in this well-crafted, age-appropriate tragedy. Begged to read Pygo aloud over and over, adults will appreciate the allusions and ironies. A charming exposé on Darwin’s impossible theory, Steven Warhurst’s new book is the fittest!” — Douglas Bond, author of children’s book God’s Servant Job and numerous books of historical fiction, biography, and practical theology
“Here is a puzzling parable. It’s likely to provoke good conversation not just with the kids in your family but with the adults who will be similarly challenged to join the debate. I wish I’d had this discussion with my own children years ago.” — Joel Belz, founder of World News Group
“It is said that if you want someone to know something, tell them. If you want them to understand something, tell them again. But if you want someone to love something, tell them a story. That is precisely what Steven Warhurst and April Rees have done in this delightful book. They’ve told a wonderful story that prompts us to love what is right and good and true—while simultaneously helping us to know and understand both the beauty of God’s created order and the dangers inherent in violating His gracious commands.” — George Grant, pastor of Parish Presbyterian Church, Franklin, Tennessee
