Texting Through Time: John Taylor and the Mystery Puzzle

I'm very glad thrilled to host Christy Monson and her new book:

This is the second book in her smart phone time traveling saga. In the first book, we went to the frontier and met Brigham Young. This time the new adventures of Micah and Alicia take them to England to meet John Taylor.

The theme of this book is missionary work. The events of John Taylor's life are not nearly as well known as Brigham Young or Joseph Smith. Fortunately, Christy has remedied that with some amazing stories from his life of faith, courage and conversion from both sides of the pond.

In order to find their way back home they must solve a pictogram, or as the Phone calls it, a scripture picture. They must either draw or snap a photo from John Taylor's life that represents prayer, courage, faith and love, plus a secret center piece.

Once again, the superb illustrations were done by Rose Ledezma. To see more of her amazing work, hop over to her website. Here are a couple more of my favorites from the book.

The Texting Through Time series is a fun way to learn about Church history for children and adults. John Taylor and the Mystery Puzzle doesn't feel like a biography, just a great read.
