Description
The artist who illustrated the entire King James Bible in dramatic wood engravings, Barry Moser provides powerful watercolor illustrations for Margaret Hodges's life of Moses, for readers 7 to 10 and listeners of all ages.

"The venerable story of Moses gets a brisk yet compelling treatment by Hodges. With a keen eye for choosing the details that will interest children the most, she starts her story with Jewish slaves laboring under the pharaoh and longing for their homeland. The rest of the tale will be familiar to many children, beginning with Moses being placed in the bulrushes and then rescued by the pharaoh's daughter.... The book is beautiful to page through, with cream-colored pages and the bordered watercolors in Moser's signature style. Particularly powerful is a dark blue-and-black painting that re-creates the moment that the angel of God hides the fleeing Jewish slaves, causing the Egyptian army to lose sight of them. The individuals blur into the rocks, and older readers may see in them a visual reminder of Jews in the Holocaust. A list of the Ten Commandments, facing a portrait of the stone tablets, makes a moving, fitting conclusion for the book."Booklist (starred review)
