TITLE: Freddie's Fast-Cash Getaway The Parable of the Prodigal Son
AUTHOR: Bill Myers
ILLUSTRATOR: Andy J. Smith
Freddie is an ant who heads to the city with money from his Dad. He realizes the city-life isn't all he'd hoped because once the money is gone he has no "friends." He learns his lesson and returns to his family. Primary through elementary aged children will enjoy this book and the funny cartoon-style illustrations.
I enjoyed this retelling of the parable of the prodigal son. I noticed many modern-day shops in the story on the illustrations of the city, like "Bugs & Noble."
