Product Details

A new edition of the moving Bible story of Queen Esther by internationally acclaimed illustrator and author of children's books, Tomie de Paola

Queen Esther, the wife of King Ahasuerus of Persia, bravely risked her life to prevent the killing of all the Jews in Persia. Colorful, delicate, and inspiring, Tomie de Paola's artwork brings to life his beautiful telling of this unique and important Bible story.

This is a simple and accurate rendition of the powerful Esther story retold for children, highlighted by the exquisite illustrations of de Paola. The text and pictures show how God helps his people in sometimes miraculous ways when we put all our trust and confidence in him, no matter how dire the circumstances.
