An accomplished author and illustrator team come together to present a children's Bible, full of charm and grace. A leading Bible storyteller, Lois Rock uses all her understanding and skill to retell 50 favourite stories from the Old and New Testaments, with simplicity and sincerity. Each story is prefaced with a one-line introduction explaining its place in the Bible, so children can gain a deeper understanding of the broader sweep and purpose of the Bible's stories as a whole. This keepsake Bible is graced with glowing pencil and watercolour illustrations, which add to its charm and appeal, and is specially presented in a blue edition.
Lois Rock has established an international reputation as a children's writer. Specializing in Bible stories, prayer books, and information books, her books have been translated into over 30 languages with sales approaching 4 million copies. She draws on her experience as a mother of three, and as a leader of church children's groups. Sophie Allsopp spent her childhood endlessly painting, sewing, cutting, and sticking - basically making stuff all the time (except when she was exploring). She studied for an illustration degree in Bath, then set up an illustration business with help from the Prince's Youth Business Trust, which has flourished with a wide range of clients ever since. In her spare time she still makes stuff - jewellery, dresses and needle felting (amongst other things!)
