Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Unable to alleviate her daughter's fears about going to school, Elizabeth's mother tells her about someone else who had to be brave. That "young lady" was Queen Esther of the Bible, and the central part of this book is a condensed version of her story, stating that Mordecai merely "got into trouble with the high court. The king ordered that Mordecai and all of the Jews be killed." The pivotal role of the arch-villain Haman is simply summarized. Even worse is the distortion of the theme: Queen Esther risked her life to save her people from genocide, quite a different magnitude of courage from that needed by a child going to school. The writing is repetitive and stilted, reading like a first draft that was never revised or edited. The illustrations are as stiff and unnatural as the writing. Faces are often twisted into grimaces or blank smiles, Esther looks like a movie starlet, colors are lurid, and both line and perspective are exaggerated to no good effect. Virtually any other story about Queen Esther is preferable to this one.-Linda R. Silver, Jewish Education Center of Cleveland, OH Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Appropriately Dramatic

    I enjoyed sharing this book with my child. The story was simplified to the extreme and I added verbal details and explainations, but that was okay, because the book was a springboard to good conversation about important value issues. I am a great believer in parents reading and discussing books - so this book gave me a positive opening for discussion. The dramatic expressions and dynamic use of color were exciting and different - like M-TV with the jumpy energy and fast pace.It was not blah!
