Recounting the Old Testament tales in a voice tailored to children, Lottridge provides a straightforward translation (""Then Moses stretched his hand out over the sea. And God sent a strong east wind that blew all night and divided the water and made a path of dry land through the middle of the sea""), citing the biblical passages from which the stories originate. Clement (The Great Poochini) contributes illustrations characterized by loose pen-and-ink lines and watercolor wash. .
