David is invited to a sleepover at King Saul's palace. But will David and the king's son ever become friends? David and the Lonely Prince shows us that for many children, learning to make friends can be a challenge. It is a tale which encourages us to read between the lines of what the Bible tells us about David's early years. The light-hearted and beautifully illustrated pictures will delight parents and children alike, regardless of religious conviction.
