An Extraordinary Friend
Adventures of Jamie and Bella
By: Olivier Bonnewijn
Lost! Jamie's vacation with his family begins with a catastrophe. He is separated from his parents in a foreign train station, with night approaching. Suddenly there appears a mysterious boy dressed in torn clothing with wounds. In helping this boy, and in letting this boy help him, Jamie discovers much more than what he was looking for, learning some beautiful lessons about the importance of kindness, courage, and faith.
This is the first book in The Adventures of Jamie and Bella, a popular series of stories that can be read independently of the others but that contain the exciting and enriching experiences of Jamie and his sister Bella. At the end of each book, is a set of faith-deepening questions and answers that children and parents can discuss together.
Illustrated throughout with four-color pictures.
Ages 7 to 11
