    Cheers

  4. These illustrations are wonderful. Would you have access to the story where the little boy in the hospital raises his hand for Jesus to take him? I’d appreciate any info you have on that story.

  5. Brian,

    I think the story you mention must be in another edition. There are several.

  6. Hey thanks for checking — how very nice of you. Well I might find it some day. Funny thing — whenever I mention that story, somebody jumps out of the woodwork and says OMG that story freaked me out as a child!

  7. This is the story about the child who raises his hand:
