The Mystery of the Hidden Bridge by David W. Scheer is a children’s book on the importance of faith in Jesus Christ. The writer discusses many themes, such as humility, faith, death, and society. The tone of the text is informal, direct, and simple, creating a personal atmosphere, thereby engaging the reader.

The author begins the novel by describing three excellent swimmers, Eddie Evil, Lenny Luke, and Ricky Wright. Eddie Evil was a mean, proud person, while Lenny Luke and Ricky Wright were humbler and fairer. The three swimmers arrange a competition to determine who is the fastest swimmer. They agree that the swimmer who crosses the Atlantic Oceans first is the best swimmer and the news channels come to record the competition. Suddenly, an old man appears and speaks about an invisible bridge. Who is the invisible bridge? Who will win the competition?

There were several positive characteristics in the story. More analytically, the writer included numerous poetic devices and linguistic techniques, which engaged the reader in the story. Additionally, the book was professionally edited, as I did not encounter any errors in the entire novel. The story also followed a logical, chronological flow, thus allowing the reader to understand the development of the novel. What I liked most in the novel was that it contained beautiful illustrations, which added vividness and liveliness to the text.

This book is best suited for Christian young readers and parents who enjoy stories related to sports. This book is ideal for parents reading to young children to teach them many valuable Christian principles. Christian readers will enjoy this story the most, as it is written from a Christian perspective with Biblical verses.

All in all, I rate this book with 4 out of 4 stars. I handed this book a perfect score, as it was vivid, engaging, and excellently edited. I recommend this book to every reader that finds it interesting.

Christian books with a decent plot and solid lessons for young readers are rare. It's good to know that the author merged both elements seamlessly. Thanks for the recommendation.

In today's world where doctrines fly everywhere, we need to safeguard the kids and keep them rooted in faith. This is a book I'd recommend for catching them young in faith.
