Daddy Warbucks

Title: Finding Daddy Warbucks
Author: David Hwa
Publisher: Wellworth, LLC
Pages: 180
Genre: Christian Fiction
Format: Ebook


We never know how God may lead us. The twists and turns of life often leave us confused and deflated. For 10-year-old Haley, the unexpected loss of her father was such a twist. When all is lost, a little light in the darkness can make all the difference. The world is a big place for a little girl. For that matter, it’s a pretty big place for anyone who has lost their way.

Hayley finds her solution in a modern day prince, but she can’t pull off this miracle by herself. Nick, an attorney struggling to save his job, wouldn’t seem to be much help to a little girl trying to create a miracle. But life has a way of bringing us the people we need most, at just the right time. Still, there is so much that could go wrong, especially when her headstrong mother doesn’t fall for the prince. But there’s something Hayley doesn’t see coming, something she can’t see. Something she doesn’t want to see, something that hides in the dark where she can’t go, something unspeakable.

Follow Haley’s journey into the light and see how redemption is there for anyone, even the condemned. And see how love can find you-even through the darkness.


Hayley steps out of the 7-Eleven into the morning sun. Dressed in her National Academy tartan uniform, her giraffe backpack, Stanley, dangling off her shoulder she looks very much like a lost prep-school munchkin. Stanley looks a little tired today, but that’s normal for him. He has a short neck, very un-giraffe- like, but that doesn’t bother Hayley. She fell in love with him the first moment she saw him. She circles around the store to the side parking lot where a group of high school boys mill around with their skateboards smoking and laughing. She approaches the tallest one whose hair looks especially chaotic.

This is a fun fast read. What happens when 3 kids go looking for a husband for their mom? Craziness, that’s what! Hayley is the ring leader and is in the 5th grade. She has a younger brother and sister who go along with things but she is the one that finds Nick and “Daddy Warbucks” who is actually Sir John, a wealthy business man. Hayley things that Sir John is the answer to the problem, but is he really? and is he ready to take on 3 kids?

there were some very funny/cute parts in this book and while it is labeled as Christian, I only recall a few paragraphs near the end where it references the Bible and a few verses. This is a sweet and clean story that will have you shaking your head at some of the kid’s antics and even the adults!

We give this 4 paws up!
