Serpents, lions, whales, the raven, and the dove are just a few of the wily, fierce, friendly, or peace-making creatures that can be found in many Bible stories. In nine vivid retellings Mary Hoffman shows how these animals have challenged, tricked, helped, or even rescued some of the most famous Biblical figures. As in their highly praised previous collaborations, Parables and Miracles, Mary Hoffman and Jackie Morris have created another beautifully illustrated picture book that turns the complex language and stories of the Bible into accessible and enjoyable reading for a wide range of young people.
Illustrated by Jackie Morris.
