When Jesus wanted to change lives he told stories. That's what the Lost Sheep series is all about. At the centre of the stories is Jesus. Some stories are about him, some are by him, but all of them point to him. The series takes the spirituality of children seriously but also believe the gospel is fun.

Rude frog, falling log, soggy feet, building slog – these are just some of the challenges you may face today. So, what is the wise thing to do? To find out read these four stories from the book of Proverbs.


As a young Bible college student, Andrew was asked to give the ‘children’s talk’ at a large church. He possessed one talent: he could draw sheep. He drew up the story of Cecil. The congregation loved it, so Andrew continued to draw stories to use with kids and adults which eventually became a series of 31 books!

Before devoting all his time to Lost Sheep, Andrew was pastor of the WestCare community in Adelaide, South Australia. He regularly tells stories and conducts workshops in schools and churches and will be a main speaker at the Hand in Hand Children’s conference in February.



Andrew McDonough


‘I met Andrew the creator of Cecil the Lost Sheep when I was in Australia last and just love his stuff. It fits into the Messy Church ethos – quirky fun for adults and for children.’

Lucy Moore Messy Church

‘Fresh, vivid and attention-grabbing. These stories touch the heart and illuminate the mind. Great work!’

Max Lucado, pastor and bestselling author
