Synopsis

The Moses Basket by Jenny Koralek

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.

About the Author

Jenny Koralek's books include The Song of Roland Smith, Mabel's Story, The Boy and the Cloth of Dreams and A Treasury of Stories from the Brothers Grimm. Pauline Baynes drew the original line illustrations for J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and C.S. Lewis's 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. She illustrated all Tolkien's other books during his lifetime and after his death was commissioned to illustrate Bilbo's Last Song.
