Others are more cartoon-ish, people with funny expressions and cute animals, or imaginative takes on the story. * www.thebookbag.co.uk * This re-telling of Old Testament tales for young readers marries adited stories from the King James Bible with superb pictures from a legendary illustrator. Great seasonal gift. * i - (New concise daily from the Independent) * In the Beginning is a fabulous, simple collection of Old Testament stories with bold, brilliant pictures by an extraordinary illustrator. * Spectator *
