Key events from the Old Testament's book of Exodus—those remembered on the Jewish holiday of Passover—are presented in an inviting, straightforward text sure to leave readers both better informed and ready to enjoy a seder with family and friends. Chwast's (The Miracle of Hanukkah ) lively mixed-media illustrations often suggest comic-book panels or animation cels and bring color and energy to the proceedings. In an appealing design element, he presents the plagues, the burning bush and traditional components of the seder in a nifty lift-the-flap format. Young readers will likely appreciate this additional interactivity and guessing-game-style fun. Ages 4-8. (Mar.)
