God's Mailbox: More Stories about Stories in the Bible

Marc Gellman, Author, Debbie Tilley, Illustrator Morrow Junior Books $15 (111p) ISBN 978-0-688-13169-2
Rabbi Gellman's stories about stories in the Bible-or modern midrashim, if you prefer-will delight parents and children alike. Using imagination and humor-did you know about the 11th-16th commandments that Moses wrote on his sleeve but his wife washed off?-Gellman's retellings of Bible stories provide readers with whole new perspectives on stories they may have known for years. The story about how Moses and a wisecracking frog convinced Pharaoh to let the Jews leave Egypt is particularly funny and contains elements that would surely make God smile, if not laugh out loud. Ages 8-12. (Apr.)
