Great Bible Stories: Joseph in Egypt

Great Bible Stories: Joseph in Egypt is the second of two books in the Great Bible Stories series dealing with Joseph of the Old Testament. (Click here to read my review of the first book.) Written by Maxine Nodel, this is a straightforward retelling of Joseph's experience as an Egyptian ruler, and how he came to reconcile with his brothers. Once again, well known comic book illustrator Normal Nodel provides the illustrations.

What I Like: The illustrations are vivid and detailed, and the retelling of this story refrains from being overly-wordy. This book is relatively simple, but engaging.

What I Dislike: Nothing, but do be aware that this book will not make sense unless either the Great Bible Stories book Joseph is read first, or the readers are quite familiar with the story of Joseph and his coat of many colors.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: 5 - 9.
