Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
With colorful cartoon pictures the story of Moses, Pharaoh, the ten plagues, and the exodus is told as a play and in rollicking rhyme. This would be fun at a Seder or in other small groups. The five roles—narrator, Moses, Pharaoh, Egyptians, and a chorus—appear in different colors of type. At the burning bush God tells Moses, "Here's my plan" to which Moses replies in a word balloon, "I just don't think I can." The chorus says, "Poor Moses." Before each catastrophe the chorus repeats: "A Plague! A Plague! A Plague!" in which even the youngest children can participate. For the plague of frogs Pharaoh says in a word balloon, "They're hopping everywhere! Tell God to send the frogs away, Then you can go without delay. They're in my oven, in my bed. I think a frog jumped on my head." But when the frogs are dead he shouts, "No! No! No!" Only with the last plague he shouts, "Go! Go! Go!" Children will love the funny pictures of the people with gnats, flies, boils, or locusts. Actors will enjoy reading or may soon learn their parts for a fun production. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
School Library Journal

K-Gr 3- The biblical story of the Exodus tells how God, through Moses, prevailed upon the hard-hearted Pharaoh to release the Israelites from slavery by sending 10 terrible plagues to Egypt. This slim picture book retells the story in rhyme. Bright cartoonlike illustrations bring an over-the-top humor that cannot quite mask the horror of a river turned to blood or of dying cattle. The lighthearted verse is slightly forced, but bounces along at a rollicking pace. The most interesting aspect of the book is the color coding that allows it to be used as a reader's theater script. Note, however, that the parts vary in difficulty. The narrator is assigned a great deal of complex reading, while most other parts are short and repetitive. The end, when Pharaoh finally lets the Israelites go, comes abruptly and does not include the parting of the Red Sea. This book will be welcome in Jewish and Christian educational settings and may enliven family Passover Seders, but it does not provide enough context for general readers to make sense of the glossed-over terrors within.-Heidi Estrin, Feldman Children's Library at Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FL
