We had the good fortune of receiving an advanced copy of the new graphic-novel “iPlates, Volume One”, by Stephen Carter and Jett Atwood. Based on the Book of Mormon story about Zeniff, Abinadi, and the battles between the Nephites and Lamanites, it’s a comic-style adaptation that piqued my grumpy tween into devouring a scripture story and raving about it to his friends. No joke.
Jeffrey’s own review:
This book was awesome. I even took it to school and showed it to some of my friends. I might even like reading scriptures if I could read them all this way. I can’t wait for the next one. (do we get the next one, mom??!)
~Jeffrey M, Age 11, Hater of scripture study.
You can check out the book on Amazon. Carter and Atwood are creative parents who have worked together on this enjoyable project, and are currently in production of Volume II, which my family is looking forward to reading. Rumor has it there is a volume in the works about Abish- we can’t wait.
