The King's Book
Who was the secret editor who published the work of 54 different translators and made the Bible sing?
Before Nat Culver, a son of a translator, finds out answers to these questions, he is plunged into a series of baffling incidents concerning accusations made against his father.
Why was his father being called a traitor? Who was this secret enemy? Could it be one of the translators? Or did the accusations concern the threat of a Catholic uprising, like another Gunpowder Plot?
With the help of Button, servant to King James' right-hand man, Nat discovers his father's enemy and why this man was a fanatic. Along the way, Nat discovers, too, more about the Bible than he ever thought possible.
"Vernon's books provide children with a double opportunity--reading of interesting fiction and learning what it was like to live long ago." --Calvary Review
