Bink and Stink Meet King Solomon by Stanley G. Buford is an interesting story of an unusual adventure. After listening to their dad read the well-known Bible story of King Solomon, these little boys have an amazing dream in which they actually meet the real king. During their stay in the kingdom, they are able to have intimate conversations with the king and they spend quite a lot of time with him. They experience first-hand what it must have been like to be in charge of such a large group of people, and they are witnesses to Solomon’s famous wisdom. The boys enjoy their time in the kingdom, and learn many valuable lessons about the importance of family and of how our choices determine the outcome of our lives.
Stanley G. Buford writes from the perspective of two young boys. The story is interesting and packed with many unexpected twists and turns. Although the reader is aware from the beginning that it’s a dream, the fact that both siblings share it adds a special touch of mystery to the plot. The language is simple, yet elegant and easy to understand. Stanley G. Buford portrays the relationship between the boys as one that grows and improves because of the shared experience. As the story develops, this relationship proves to be important in their lives. This story is appealing to young children and even preteens because it contains many opportunities for practical applications and group discussions. The wisdom of King Solomon is timeless, and Stanley G. Buford brings it to life in this story.
