Shifty Characters, invites early readers into the world of change from a lyrical, language arts point of view. These shifty characters have the ability to reposition and re-invent themselves without adding or omitting a single letter. They go about transforming themselves into new words, thoughts and sounds as they change from verbs to nouns. The story subtly segues into how God can transform our character even when we are children. This delightfully, rhythmic work, promises to keep young book lovers laughing, and turning the pages as they experience usual and unusual people, places, and things through the antics of the Shifty Characters. Most importantly, it will invoke thought and parent/teacher/child dialogue about the connection between transformation and salvation.
