Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-A solid retelling of the Old Testament story of the Queen of Sheba's visit to Solomon to see just how wise he was. The rich, vibrant, full-color illustrations with pen detail are filled with flowers, the focus of the third riddle that King Solomon must solve. A good series entry for beginning readers.-Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
