Long, long ago in Egypt, there were so many Hebrew slaves that the Pharaoh feared they might turn against him - and ordered every Hebrew boy-child to be killed. But one mother was determined not to let her son die. The story of how she saved baby Moses is beautifully retold by Jenny Koralek. Pauline Baynes' sumptuous illustrations make this a first Bible picture book to delight very young readers.
Jenny Koralek's books include The Song of Roland Smith, Mabel's Story, The Boy and the Cloth of Dreams, A Treasury of Stories from the Brothers Grimm, Keeping Secret. This is her first book for Frances Lincoln. The second title in the series is The Coat of Many Colours Pauline Baynes did the original line illustrations for The Lord of the Rings and The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Her portrayals of Middle Earth and Narnia helped transform the books into towering classics which, in 2000, were voted Book of the Millennium and Children's Book of the Millennium respectively by the Library Association. Pauline's other titles for Frances Lincoln include I Believe, an illuminated edition of the Nicene Creed, and The Coat of Many Colours.
