The Bible tells us that King David was a man after God’s own heart (1 Samuel 13:14), chosen by Him to lead his people of Israel.

David began life as a simple shepherd, but his fearless courage and unshakeable faith in God would bring him to slay the Philistine giant Goliath and become a celebrated warrior. After the death of King Saul, the Lord God would establish David as the king of Israel.

Soon, King David would go on to conquer the fortress city of Jerusalem and install the Ark of the Covenant within its walls. But, above all, King David would be remembered as the inspired poet and harpist who composed the Biblical Psalms to the Lord his God. Award-winning author Demi recounts the dramatic story of David, the shepherd who rose to become king.

Demi is the award-winning author and illustrator of over 300 bestselling children’s books, including The Fantastic Adventures of Krishna, Shiva, Mahavira, Gifts of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and Talking to God. Her titles have sold over two million copies. The Empty Pot was selected by former First Lady Barbara Bush in 1990 as one of the books to be read on the ABC Radio Network Program Mrs. Bush’s Story Time, sponsored by the Children’s Literacy Initiative. Demi’s book Gandhi was named a New York Times Best Illustrated Book and received an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award.

Major exhibitions of her artwork have been held in numerous museums in the U.S., including the Time/Life Gallery in New York, the Botolph Galleries in Boston and Cambridge, and the Los Angeles County Museum.

Demi won a Fulbright Scholarship to India, and in addition she represented the U.S. at the First International Children’s Book Conference in Beijing, China, in 1992.

She lives in Yarrow Point, WA.


“Beautifully told by, and featuring the memorable artwork of author/illustrator Demi, The Psalms of King David is an ideal and unreservedly recommended pick for family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, Sunday School, and community library picture book collections.”
