Review

Flea is just like his name - small, irritating, determined, resilient and a bit of a parasite. Flea lives on the fringes of a street gang in Jerusalem way back in biblical times. In fact, this story is set when Jesus was alive.

Flea has to live by his wits, thieving scraps of food and money, trusting no-one. So when he hears that crowds are gathering to watch a magician entering the city on a donkey, he knows there are opportunities for a tiny, talented pick-pocket. But his meeting with the charismatic Yeshua and his side-kick Jude leads Flea on a different, more dangerous journey altogether…

An original take on a well-known story - fast-paced, moving and full of suspense
