First Bible Stories
By Margaret Mayo
Illustrated by Nicola Smee
A collection of the greatest and best-loved stories in the Old Testament, specially retold to share with the very young.
Children and their parents will enjoy meeting Adam and Eve and the sneaky snake; brave Daniel in the lions' den; Jonah and the enormous whale, and Joseph and his rough-tough brothers. These nine tales, full of lively characters, make the perfect introduction to Bible stories.
"Positively jaunty in tone, and Nicola Smee's friendly illustrations make this collection very accessible"
