Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
Here is an old story beautifully told, and the magnificent illustrations in this book make it truly lovely. The Jews who lived in Persia in Esther's time were almost fully assimilated with their neighbors. But they practiced their own religion, and that would have been their downfall if Esther had not been queen. Esther, chosen (in a beauty contest) as King Ahasueros' queen, was clever as well as beautiful. The evil prime minister, Haman, would have killed all the Jews, but Esther's uncle Mordechai found out about his plans. When Esther told the king that she, too, would have to die, he had Haman hanged. This is a Jewish story, but the Jews of Persia are not lily-white; they are as diverse as their neighbors-very refreshing!
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2In a direct and lively style that conveys its intensity and drama, Gelman retells the stirring story of a young woman who risks her own life to save her people when the prime minister orders that all of the Jews in Persia be killed. The bold, full-color gouache paintings in folk-art style are full of details about court life in Persia. Double-spread pages are often framed in a manner that accentuates the story's events. Thus, the bricks of the palace walls, the arches of the palace interior, or the gallows with a hanging rope surrounding the text become effective design elements. "A Purim Notebook" gives background information on the holiday and its celebration. Diane Wolkstein's Esther's Story (Morrow, 1996) is told as a diary and is illustrated by Juan Wijngaard in a more elegant style. Queen Esther is a fine choice for reading aloud during the Purim festival, which recounts this inspiring event.Susan Pine, New York Public Library
