“As well as the interest and excitement of the stories, the dialogue between Ivan and the other characters explains the gospel in simple and straightforward language, placing its challenge before the reader. The warmth of the presentation is sure to commend eternal truths to the young. I am looking forward to reading this series to my daughter! These little books would make excellent Sunday school prizes. Highly recommended.” — Evangelical Times
