NavPress to release “Good Night Classics” from author and illustrator C. S. Fritz

Carol Stream, Ill. (December 2, 2021) NavPress, in alliance with Tyndale House Publishers, will release Good Night Classics on April 5, 2022. In this beautifully written and illustrated exploration of fairy tales through the lens of the gospel, classic stories illuminate the truths of Scripture in ways children will love.

  • Geppetto walks through the woods to carve out his creation
  • Jack learns that money isn’t the treasure he needs
  • Gretel discovers the dangers of temptation
  • The three little pigs find out how important a firm foundation is
  • Pinocchio listens to his father’s call to come home and be made new

Including a Scripture-based discussion guide for families, these captivating retellings of beloved fairy tales will help families explore biblical truths, strengthen familial bonds, and draw closer to God.

David Zimmerman, publisher for NavPress, says, “It’s a growing conviction of mine that Christian publishing these days is, as much as anything, an act of pulling back the curtain on the ways that God is a living and active presence in our world. Our world is, of course, what we make it—our craft and culture, the work of our hands—and an example of that is the classic tales on display in Good Night Classics. But the world is also a creation of God. The stories in this book are well known and well loved. But Good Night Classics pulls back the curtain on them to show that the stories we love are so often echoing the love that God has for us and speaks into the world. Casey Fritz has the right mix of brilliances—beautiful art and a great alertness to God’s presence. He points out here the good news of God’s love peeking through the cracks of each of these stories.”
