CHILDREN'S BIBLE STORIES

From Genesis to Daniel
adapted by , illustrated by
Age Range: 6 - 10

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Twenty-six of the best known Old Testament stories--Adam and Eve, Noah, Samson and Delilah, David and Goliath, Jonah, Daniel in the lion's den, etc.--skillfully condensed and paraphrased, yet retaining their inherent drama: an impressive example of high- quality bookmaking that is far less wordy and more beautiful than most Bible story collections. Gilbert's 19 full-page, realistic colored pencil drawings are beautifully crafted: a magisterial Moses who parts the waters to expose coral, bones, an octopus, and the ribs of a wrecked ship; a Witch of Endor who echoes Beardsley. The format is enhanced with decorated capitals and page margins, rubrics, running titles, and a handsome typeface. The appealing jacket features the Peaceable Kingdom with a child astride a flower-bedecked lion; a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Save the Children. (Nonfiction. 6-10)
