Can Sophie and Timley travel the world? It’s up to YOU!

HOW TO Play:

  1. Print and color the coloring page below, color your own picture, or use the book cover.
  2. Pose them in a fun, interesting place and take a picture! (Going somewhere or doing something fun? Take Sophie and Timley with you! Send them to relatives or friends in distant places!)
  3. Send the picture to me through the Contact page or post it on Facebook, Instagram, etc. and tell me where you posted it (you can send me a message on the website or on Facebook or any way you know how to reach me). I’ll put it on a special Pinterest page so you can see everywhere Sophie and Timley go! The link is under the coloring page.

Many thanks to brilliant illustrator, Maggie Kneen, for contributing the “colouring” page (She’s British, so we have to say “colouring” instead of “coloring”)! Please see her many wonderful picture books and other artwork at

COOL OWL VIDEO (See a Great Horned Owl up close!):




Brand new, just for you! Sophie and Timley’s Bible time!  Between Sophie’s Quest and the newly released Sophie Topfeather, Superstar!, the two main characters and their friends spend the summer hanging out in the playground fort reading the Great Wise Horned Owl’s old Bible under the moonlight. You can read listen to the story, too! (I just hope it doesn’t cause you quite so much trouble!)

Find it on the tab at the top of the website that says Sophie and Timley’s Bible Time. They’re reading Interesting Animal Stories of the Bible. Join in! You can even hear what Sophie and Timley think about the story, too!


Another Cool Owl Video:

Thanks to my good friend, Debbie, for sending me this link that proves that owls can, indeed, swim, just like Sophie does in Sophie’s Quest!

At the end of Sophie’s Quest, Sophie discovers an old book that talks about a wisdom that’s more about love than about being smart. It’s the Holy Bible! If you’ve ever wondered how all the stories in the Bible fit together, here’s a fun, two-minute video!

    Hi Sonja, Love your website! Just checked out The Big Story and will send the Gospel to my son who teaches Sunday school.


    • Thank you so much! I’m glad you like the website. Hit the Follow button if you’d like to get the new post that comes out on Sundays automatically.

      How great that your son teaches Sunday school! I did that for a number of years and was amazed at how much I learned while I was teaching. If he teaches 8-12 year olds and lives in a diverse community (or just wants to understand the world better), my novel, Sophie’s Quest, has discussion questions and activities for kids at the end. Through the characters’ journey, they learn a little about world religions, and how Jesus is different–he is God with us!
