"Tell me a story, Daddy… about when God was a little girl."

Susanna's playful request begins a whimsically profound tale woven between father and daughter. Together they retell the familiar story of creation, but with unexpected twists and insightful turns along the way.

The exuberant joy of God's creative energy sparkles in this tale that honours both interconnection and diversity. Between the gentle wisdom in the text and the beautiful paintings that accompany it, you may never think about God, creation, or yourself in quite the same way.

For me it's truly a 'God-sighting,' a beautifully drawn, winsomely told tale that invites us into deeper relationship with the Divine." -- Mary Hess, professor of Educational Leadership, Luther Seminary; editorial board of Religious Education; member of Catholic Theological Society of America

"Just the sort of imaginative companionship in truth-telling that kids crave. Warmly recommended!" -- Walter Brueggeman, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary
