About Project

Golly’s Folly is the story of a young prince who desperately wants to become king. After his kindly father, King Zhor, lets him have the crown, Golly embarks upon a rollercoaster quest to find fulfillment in power, riches, knowledge, and pleasure. Yet in the end, Golly finds that nothing in this world can satisfy as much as the love of his wise father, the King.

Golly’s Folly: The Prince Who Wanted It All is a wonderful read-aloud experience for kids and adults and features a message drawn from the biblical book of Ecclesiastes.

"Golly's Folly is gorgeously illustrated, but the most beautiful thing about this book is that it teaches the most important gospel lesson of all, that life cannot be found in the acquisition of wealth, pleasure or wisdom. Wouldn't it be wonderful if, because of this little book, thousands and thousands of children learned that lesson and looked to the Father for what only the Father can give? Read this book over and over to your children, and by the way, pay careful attention as you read, because you need its lesson too."

– Paul David Tripp; Author, New Morning Mercies
