  • 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.


    PAULINE BAYNES did the original line illustrations for J.R.R Tolkiens The Lord o f the Rings and C.S. Lewiss The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Her portrayals of Middle Earth and Narnia helped transform the books into towering classics which, in the year 2000, were voted Book of the Millennium and Childrens Book of the Millennium respectively by the Library Association. She illustrated all Tolkiens other books during his lifetime and after his death was commissioned to illustrate Bilbos Last Song. Recently she updated her illustrations for the Narnia series in colour for a 50th anniversary edition. A Kate Greenaway Medal-winner for the Dictionary o f Chivalry, she also illustrated The Puffin Book of Nursery Rhymes, winner of the Caorle Prize.
