Early one morning Joseph came to my stable. 'My donkey,' he said, 'we must go on a journey . . .' Lovingly retold by acclaimed children's author Shirley Isherwood, the wonder of ten of the best stories from the bible are married with striking contemporary illustrations in this sumptuous collection. -The immediacy of the text allows the reader an 'I was there' experience as events unfold in a narrative that is variously moving, dramatic and gently humorous. With illustrations from artists such as Reg Cartwright, Allison Reed and Liz Pyle this is a unique and very beautiful collection for any child. Stories featured are:Adam and Eve and Everything; Noah and the Flood; Moses and the Great Escape; David and the Giant; Jonah and the Whale; A Very Special Star; Fishes, Loaves and Miracles; The Story of the Good Samaritan; The Last Supper; First Light
