KIRKUS REVIEW

In The Deep Blue Sea (1990), Le Tord accompanied a poetic retelling of the Creation in Genesis with lovely, understated illustrations; here, in a similar style, a beloved psalm is paraphrased in simple language that gently prompts a fresh look at its meaning (""even if I walk in the night I will not he afraid or be hurt because, Lord, You are with me and I feel reassured""). The richer, more sonorous King James version is included as preface. Delicate, carefully designed watercolors reflect the sweet, quiet tone.
