Editorial Reviews

"This superb retelling . . . smoothly weaves together a memorable, extensive narrative. . . . Filled with expressive action, the glowing, folk-art watercolors are arranged around the crisp, easily readable text. . . . Although there are many fine Bible-story collections, this is a worthy addition to the genre."  —School Library Journal

"Watts' retellings from the Old and New Testaments are vivid and evocative, introducing young readers to the mystery and wonder of this great book. . . . Marvelous stories to rival any edge-of-the-seat video."  —Booklist

"A real treat . . . built to withstand endless reading and re-reading. . . . [The] narrative is dramatic and poetic by turns. The illustrations, by Helen Cann, are beautiful and fresh."  —Church Times
