SWOOPED - Matt and Tim Riley verse Magzilla the Magpie

Within the pages of Soraya Yvette’s new book, SWOOPED - Matt and Tim Riley verse Magzilla the Magpie, ($11.99, paperback, 9781498448864) readers will follow brothers Matt and Tim Riley on another outdoor, fun-filled, Aussie adventure. Tweens and teens will join the excitement as the family’s baron backyard is transformed into a ‘Tropical Paradise’ with a waterslide and rock pool attracting both the local neighbourhood kids and the native winged wildlife including ‘Magzilla’ an oversized, angry faced magpie with a bad attitude which swoops the boys off their bicycles. The brothers learn safety measures and procedures to follow if being attacked by an aggressive magpie and experience how to be released from anger and hate through forgiveness. ‘Swooped’ contains chapters on ‘Spiritual Warfare,’ ‘Forgiveness’ and establishes ‘Who we are in Christ’ which leads the young readers into a ‘Prayer of Salvation.’

In an age where literature and movies are filled with darkness, Soraya Yvette introduces life, color and light to the younger generation. ‘Swooped’ set in the boys’ backyard, local neighborhood and school classroom, will take the young reader into the world of Matt and Tim Riley as they enjoy relating to their family, friends and pets. Experience their awesome adventures and somewhat embarrassing situations whilst bringing Christ into all they say and do.

To explain and demonstrate the Word of God through her stories, the author has written Bible Scripture Concordances to flow with the Chapters and Paragraphs of each of her books which are a free download from her website
