What was the mystery behind the printing of King James Bible in 1611?

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.

"The King James Version of the Bible is so much a part of people's lives that not much attention is paid to the background of its translation, assuming it's always been there! This small, easily read novel will enlighten children, as well as adults." --Book Newsletter

"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
