& , available in its entirety at Smashwords


A delightfully humorous and inspiring version of Noah’s Ark, this story will capture a child’s imagination and intrigue in an amusing way. I really enjoyed this fun, beautifully written story. What a wonderful way to show that God has a purpose for each and every creature. I loved the choice of photos; they were great.  Thanks for your creativity and for introducing me to glops! Keep up the good work.

I could never have put together something so charming! It's a beautiful story with lovely photographs. I was impressed and delighted by the creativity and the unexpected turn of the story.

What a fun way to engage the imaginations of children of all ages! My children loved trying to spot the GLOPS in the photos, and we all found ourselves wondering about the lives of them even after finishing the book! What a great family read!

My grandsons and I read The Story of Glops together. We thought it was a delightful and fun book which incorporates the Creation story and the Noah and the Ark story. As a retired reading teacher, I think this book is not only creative, but it models problem solving, working together, and looking at the worth of others when we would rather not. Children of all ages will enjoy The Story of Glops!

This is a super cute story! I loved the descriptive words (glop drop, limp lump, slurping). I think children will be captivated by searching for invisible glops in the wonderful pictures and in the world around them. This is a great way to inspire young minds to think about animals, the ark, and God’s creation.

That was fun! Very imaginative and well told. It will remind children that God cares even for the creatures we don’t see. Great job!

Ricky Garzon, College & Worship Pastor

This is a delightful and imaginative story. It speaks to children and adults in a way that only a story told by a child for other children can. It is clever and, ultimately, uplifting in its tale of survival against all of the odds.

and creatures of every kind.

God said, “Let the land produce all kinds of living creatures. Let there be livestock, and creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals. Let there be all kinds of them.” And that’s exactly what happened. God made all kinds of wild animals. He made all kinds of livestock. He made all kinds of creatures that move along the ground. And God saw that it was good.
