About the Author
Ben began an epic comic book collection as a boy and always cheered for the good guys like Spider-man. He developed his superpower of dancing and met his beautiful wife Keenan at BYU while part of the International Folk Dance Ensemble. They now live in Utah Valley with their five children where he teaches seminary. Ben enjoys dates with his wife, cheering on sports teams with his sons, and having dance parties in the driveway with his girls. He is also the author of the children’s book “I Hope They Call Me on a Mission.” He has also authored two more books: “10 Questions to Answer While Preparing for a Mission” and “10 Questions to Answer After Serving a Mission.”
About the Illustrator
As a young boy, Jay Fontano loved to watch cartoons on TV and read comic strips in the newspaper. Now he works as an illustrator drawing funny pictures for t-shirs and illustrations for books. Jay and his wife have six children and a dog named Nacho. They live near the mountains in Utah and love to go camping and have fun together. He still watches cartoons and reads comic strips whenever he can.
Author Benjamin Hyrum White and illustrator Jay Fontano have come together and created a book that is perfect for teaching young children basic LDS gospel principles. With easy to read text bright and colorful pictures in a graphic novel and super-hero style, this book is perfect to capture the attention of young readers. This book would also be a good Family Home Evening tool as well. I would recommend this book to LDS families with young children.
